Analogue Day Activity: Make Art and Exhibit It

In celebration of all things analogue, consider this fun offline endeavor today: create artwork (sketches, sculptures, music, poetry, etc.) and display it publicly!

I’m a fan of modern art and love to discover up and coming talent from all over the world so I try to attend as many exhibits as I can. It’s a great way to see all sorts of creative expressions, meet new people, and take advantage of free wine and hors d’oeuvres!

Freeloading aside, I highly encourage you to display your work in a public space so you can get feedback on your art and see the impact it has on someone other than you. It doesn’t have to be a big opening at a gallery with hundreds of visitors. The main point is to expose your pieces and observe its dynamics.

For instance, I’ve chosen some of my black and white prints from my photography class in university circa 2010 (my first time shooting, developing and enlarging film) and taped them up on the wall behind my office desk. It was nice to hear what my workmates thought about them and gave me lots of value-adding points for the improvement of my photography.

Plus, my mini LomoWall kind of spruced up my dreary workspace, too! So for Analogue Day, go on and create art for the world to see!
