OakTech Talk 3: Photographic innovation Creating Oakland photo panoramas as public art and shooting Oakland on the streets
Lisa Levine and Peter Tonningsen, Counterpoint, Eric Arnold, Oakland Local/CRP.org
March 14, 2013, 6:00-7:30 PM (talk starts 6:30 PM)
Solespace, 1714 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, CA.
Oakland residents and photographers Lisa Levine and Peter Tonningsen work together to take photos of Oakland street scenes--and of other locations and images--and maipulate them on the computer to create multi-panel layered landscapes that are both dynamic artworks and narratives of what they see. Working at a scale and size that cries out for more public installations, this duo produced stunning work that reflects a changing Oakland in the most sensitive and exciting way. Come find out more about their processes--and see their amazing streetscapes from all over Oakland.
In the same event, hear from Oakland Local photographer Eric Arnold, whose unfiltered photographs of Oakland art events, music and political actions say so much about our city. Find out how Eric gets his amazing shots and learn about his aesthetic.
Events will include refreshments, music, and lots of talking, learning and looking.
