The smartphone is ubiquitous in our culture. And anything that changes us the way our smartphones have, and continue to do, demands artistic attention and exposition.

Historically, artists have used tools like the Claude Glass (also referred to as a Black Mirror), Camera Lucida and Camera Obscura to help perceive the world differently through filters, reflections, superimpositions and projections of their surroundings, as a way to inform their artistic process. The Claude Glass of today is the smartphone, which goes far beyond just filtering and reflecting an artist’s perceptions but informing and transforming our experience in reality.

The artwork selected for this show explores our relationships with our smartphones…and our relationships with other humans, when the smartphone acts as our interface or interference with them. We are exposing the smartphone’s role in our experience of intimacy, perception, emptiness, comfort, vanity, connection and disconnection, whether positive or negative.

And from this point forward we wonder, how will life with smartphones be different in a year? or two?

Before, during and after the show, we strongly encourage everyone—artists, participants, observers—to help document their experience with our show using the hashtag #INTERFF. Post a photo of someone hugging Jing Niu’s plush iPhone, retweet the truths or lies you tell to Fernanda Duarte, physically tag yourself by wearing an #INTERFF button, post a Vine of Eric Raddatz in the process of creating a new piece for his #selfies series. All of the media generated by this show, using #INTERFF, will be incorporated into a future piece for the next Smartphone Art Show.
