Congratulations to Anna Dykema, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! This is the third time in three years for Anna; she follows last week’s winner, Ty Troutman of Irving. You can learn more about Anna and her photography at her blog, her Facebook page or her Etsy site.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday.
Now, here’s more from Anna:
Title: Laurie Frick’s “Quantify-me” Installation
Equipment: iPhone 4s
More about the photo: A friend of mine took me to see this installation at the City Arts Center in Oklahoma City. The artist, Laurie Frick, used collage, countertop samples and 96 laser cut drawings to create a visual intersection between science and art. She collected her own self tracking data, like sleeping patterns, exercise, computer usage, eating habits and translated that numerical data into visual patterns. Her work poses questions about our own personal data, our identities and how our own patterns can help us know ourselves more deeply. Her visually stunning show moves to Marfa, TX this Fall.
