Lacma//Chris Burden video contest
I love this video Plainsong by Slippy and Molly McAleer for Lacma. The sculpture is by the iconic Chris Burden in front of Lacma on Wilshire. The video is for Lacma light sculpture contest.a>.
A friend who knows them told me he shot the whole video on the Canon 5D and had it edited together to make the video. Love the 5D-the new one can shoot up to 1000 iso and be sharp as a tack with no grain.
more about it:
For the main event, if you’re one of the thousands who’ve taken photos or shot video in front of Urban Light, submit your images to Flickr (photos) and YouTube (videos). The best of the best will go on view online February 25 as part of a digital exhibition curated by photography head Charlotte Cotton, and will be published in a print-on-demand book; selected creative writing inspired by the work will be included, too. Charlotte will also choose one winning photograph for the publication’s cover, which will be announced right here on Unframed on February 23.
Along with this call for submissions, we’ve got lots of other Urban Light projects going on. Check out Urban Light‘s Facebook and MySpace pages for discussion, back story, and news, and follow our Twitter for little-known details about the object. There’s an Urban Light PDA tour on the way, and much more.
We look forward to seeing how Urban Light has inspired you. Just be sure to get your submission in by the deadline–Valentines Day–and don’t forget to check back here on February 23 for the winning photograph.
