Impossible's Night Out

Frank Love, | 2085 days ago

As a part of the worldwide Fashion’s Night Out gala event, Impossible set up a booth at Unis – the retail shop of acclaimed menswear designer, Eunice Lee. Between the free booze and free instant photos, the place was totally mobbed all night and we blew through almost 20 packs of our PX 100 Silver Shade film.

The magic of this photo booth is that the best images will have new life this fall when Unis uses them to create their holiday wrapping paper! And, of course, the originals will be entering the Impossible Archive.

Impossible @ Real Art Ways

Frank Love, | 2079 days ago

Thursday, Sept. 16, 2010 - 6-10pm
Real Art Ways
56 Arbor St.
Hartford
CT

As part of the Creative Cocktail Hour series, Real Art Ways is hosting photographer Jane Shauck this Thursday as she creates an instant live art project using our latest PX Sliver Shade Instant film (grab the flyer). Jane will photograph attendees at the event and hang the prints in the gallery forming a giant Quick Response Code.

The photographs will be used to create an instant live art assemblage that will be completed during the event. The foundation of the live art piece will be the Real Art Ways Quick Response Code, which functions as a gateway between the real world and the digital world. By pointing their camera phones/smartphones at this code, guests will instantly be connected to the Real Art Ways’ website. The code itself will be transformed into a true contemporary art piece, incorporating portraits of the enthusiasts of this leading contemporary arts center.

In addition, Jane will utilize our PX Color Shade for her “30 Days of Doing the Impossible” personal project. This ongoing project will be updated regularly on both her blog and Facebook page .

Impossible is proud to support the Real Art Ways event and Jane’s “30 Days…” project. Check back soon for updates!
