Matt Molloy is a sky painter and art maker. His impressionistic timelapse skies have launched him into instant internet fame. Daylighted is happy to be able to feature his work and thrilled that he sat down with us to talk about his experiences and technique.
One of the more interesting and eye-catching ideas that we’ve stumbled upon recently is the idea of photo Impressionism. Impressionism was born in France in the middle of the 19th century with painters like Monet, Sisley, Morisot, and Pissarro. Traditional impressionistic paintings feature small, visible brush strokes, accurate representation of light, and the inclusion of a feeling of movement. "[the artists] constructed their pictures from freely brushed colors that took precedence over lines and contours...They portrayed overall visual effects instead of details, and used short "broken" brush strokes of mixed and pure unmixed color—not blended smoothly or shaded, as was customary—to achieve an effect of intense color vibration.”
Daylighted recently got to attend the last Designers+Geeks meetup on the topic "Photography By Design". The event was held at Yelp awesome offices in downtown SF and was a great networking opportunity for Daylighted. There was a huge turnout and it was fun to hear about some of the other photo businesses out there.
San Francisco (June, 9th 2015) - Daylighted is pleased to share its installation at the Joie De Vivre Galleria Park Hotel. Upon entering the hotel lobby, guests will now be greeted by an elegant digital canvas revealing custom art exhibitions. The SmArtGallery, provided by Daylighted, is a 40-inch, high-definition monitor that can be controlled in real time by hospitality personnel. This technology is the first of its kind allowing hotels to change the art displayed in their establishment as often as they like. The Joie De Vivre Hotel Group is known for their innovative practices and creative use of technology so their affiliation with Daylighted only seems natural.
Daylighted participated to a great event last week organized by Hollie McLaughin from ArtCrasher.
We hear a lot that photography is dead. The old way to do photography, with the traditional analog camera and the photographs that you used to develop in a photo laboratory, might be disappearing. But as Aaron Lindberg said in his article on fstoppers.com, “Photography is not dead, photography has never been more important than it is today.”
