Dear Bay Area Friends. I will be in Oakland/Berkeley/SF this weekend. It would be nice to see as many of you as possible.

I was graciously invited to judge an art exhibition of Victorville high school students. I was impressed by the amount of talent on display. I was also saddened by how difficult the path is for a young artist. With a lack of support and resources for art in education, cultural producers of the future face an unenviable struggle to develop an sustainable art practice. #supportlocalartist #supportartinschools #futureculture #artinschools #andrewkthompson

I needed help pulling this out of the mold with one hand, but here’s the second beta test of a frozen Caffenol camera. #photooftheday #analogphotography #caffenol #andrewkthompson

Back to beauty. #photooftheday #digitalart #aotd #andrewkthompson

Blaam! @vikingbmx  @chulavistabmx

Lev Manovich: There is Only Software

Excerpt:

Depending on the software I am using, the “properties” of a media object can change dramatically. Exactly the same file with the same contents can take on a variety of identities depending on the software being used. What does this finding means in relation to the persisting primacy of the term “digital” in understanding new media? Let me answer this as clear and direct as I can. There is no such thing as “digital media.” There is only software – as applied to media data (or “content”). #levmanovich #digitalphotography #andrewkthompson

My day in photography Friday, March 16th. I started the day photographing a complex glass sculpture for @ayaokidoki, then drove into LA for @focusphotola opening reception (which was excellent), followed by an impromptu darkroom collaboration with the Boss @ross.sonnenberg1138 in his D.I.Y. garage darkroom. I love being this fluent, flexible, and totally committed with my chosen medium. #analogphotography #digitalphotography #allphotography #andrewkthompson #skills 💪🏽

Hello Friends, 
Please join me tomorrow evening between 6-9 PM for the opening reception of 2018 FOCUS photo l.a. at 3118 W Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026. 
FOCUS photo l.a. is a photo competition that helps provide emerging and mid-career artists/photographers opportunities to broaden their career opportunities and promote their work and for many reasons, this exhibition is a big moment for me. 
My image Green-Rainbow Palm Tree (the same picture that appeared on the most recent cover of The Hand Magazine) was chosen to be one of twenty finalists by esteemed judges Jo Ann Callis, Paris Chong, and Rachel Peart to have their images printed by A&I Fine Art + Photography and framed by Fine Art Solutions. 
I get to share the space with these amazing and soon to be canonical photographers; Alan Kupchick, Alexandra Naumova, Ali LeRoi, Diana Velasco, Elisabeth Caren, Irvin Rivera, J. Fredric May, Jamie Johnson, Jim McKinniss, John Van Hamersveld, Karley Sullivan, Lisa McCord, Michaela Kindle, Molly McCall, Ole Marius Joergensen, Pat Martin, Patty Carroll, Richard Knapp, and Stephen Schafer. 
Even more world-renowned photography galleries, art fairs, museums, and publications than ever see my work. Check out this video produced by FOCUS photo l.a. 
This exhibition also opens up a new aspect of my artwork, because as many of you know, I create one-of-a-kind photographs and what will be on view will be a photograph of the original print. Those who are interested in seeing “the real thing” can make an appointment with the venerable Alan Klotz in New York City. Maybe one day I’ll display the two side by side 
Oh yeah, this also means that I currently have three exhibitions up in Southern California at one time. Life in the Cracks is still on view at the San Bernardino County Museum, so is Transpose at Eastside International. I'm excited to see where this momentum will lead throughout this year. 
As always, thank you for your support. 
Best regards,
Andrew

Thank you @maragladstone and @psartmuseum for all the hospitality yesterday!

What’s he doing in there?

I cannot express how proud I am of this group of artists. They did a great job with their exhibition Anthro-Obscene. They handled every challenging detail like veteran artists. Their reception was packed, the show was great, and they did it all. At the most, I guided them through the procedures of organizing exhibitions and made suggestions. I feel like a proud parent! I can’t wait to see their futures unfurl. #proud  @483artist #progressgallery #pomona 
There will be gallery hours this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Go see the show while you have time.

A dictionary begins when it no longer gives the meaning of words, but their tasks. Thus formless is not only an adjective having a given meaning, but a term that serves to bring things down in the world, generally requiring that each thing have its form. What it designates has no rights in any sense and gets itself squashed everywhere, like a spider or an earthworm. In fact, for academic men to be happy, the universe would have to take shape. All of philosophy has no other goal: it is a matter of giving a frock coat to what is, a mathematical frock coat. On the other hand, affirming that the universe resembles nothing and is only formless amounts to saying that the universe is something like a spider or spit. ☛ “Formless” by Georges Bataille, Documents 1, Paris, 1929, p. 382.
