Update on Dasein Installation [+ Re-Watch of Announcement]

Yowza. Just posting the chasejarvisLIVE rewatch here of the initial announcement and quick update on the project I launched just 4 days ago. (video above, audiocast version here.). Thanks to you and the worldwide creative community, the Dasein: An Invitation to Hang installation in NYC is off to an unbelievable start. I’m blown away by the images, the volume, and your response to the project. Humbled. Inspired. But we’re just getting started.

Yours truly and my on-the-ground crew have been working 18+ hours per day getting this project up to speed. I’ve been shooting like mad thanks to all the inspiration coming in from around the world, AND I’ve been looking at pictures from wakeup to sleep since Thursday. Since kickoff, we had 1000 images in the first hour and are currently averaging more than 1000 images per day. Of those, we’re printing and hanging between 100 and 350 completely fresh images everyday for the physical installation. Serious affair. Now that we’re fully up to speed and…… have a workflow in place to handle the project demands, this thing is starting to really hum.

In the coming 48 hours, here’s what you can expect:

_we will continue the torrid pace of photographing NYC, reviewing your contributions to online installation InvitationToHang.com site, curating those images and installing our favs in the physical gallery here at the Ace Hotel. 100-200 new images on average everyday – a living, breathing physical gallery refresh daily.

_I’ll begin sharing some of my favorite images–some that I’m shooting and some that you’re contributing–here on the blog. I’ll be looking for your comments. On my work and the work of others.

_We’ll do some video updates from the gallery, some running commentary on great images. If you’re looking to see if your images are hanging, this is a good way to see ‘em.

_and the traditional (non-Dasein project) content on the blog will resume, perhaps even ramp up.

Reminder that this art installation would love your participation to help make it as powerful as it can be. Kick over as many quality images as you’d like. And this is not a competition, so share this with your friends. Friends who aren’t photographers, who don’t read industry blogs. A wide net. The more the marrier, and the installation will be stronger because of all this. Also, you should read my work-in-progress manifesto for the project (half way down the post) if you haven’t already to see why I believe so deeply in the snapshot as an emerging, elevated form of art.

Until then, I’m off to go shoot some more images. Keep yours coming. InvitationToHang.com and here’s an insider tip: check out the “Thumbnail Mode” in the sidebar of the project site. It’s damn cool.

More to come.

    Chase,
    Check out my blog post for invitation to hang @ http://www.mathewgardellaphotography.blogspot.com I’d like to encourage everyone to put it on their’s as well. This is an outstanding idea that will make photographic history. We should all be a part of it! Thanks Chase for your insight and inspiration.

    awesome stuff, I’m still interested in these printers from polaroid, any news on them yet?

    • Chase May 17, 2011 at 7:34 pm #

      Hi Chris. All the digital imagery that is submitted in this project is printed out my personal fleet of the forthcoming Polaprinters. Ink free (paper is called zink, as in zero ink) and very cool. They are not “out” yet, but Polaroid will be announcing them w details soon.

  4. Abhi May 16, 2011 at 4:03 pm #

    Hi Chase,

    What might be the best time to meet you at the gallery. I send you a DM on twitter.

    Appreciate if you could reply.

    Best,
    Abhi.

    Will there be a digital version of the images that go to print or do you have to physically go to The Ace to see the printed images?

    • Chase May 17, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

      digital versions of the hung wall will appear throughout the project via my tweets, facebook, vids, etc. they are fleeting, just like the moments captured in the images ;)

    I love to watch the print wall videos .. almost every day !!!
    Those videos will be like air for whose ( like us ) living in Europe!!

    it so great to have my my work currated by cj my hero woo hoo. its amazing to be a part of this history. on a personal note im stoked about my work being associated with his likes..

  15. Anonymous May 17, 2011 at 11:44 am #

    Hi, is there anyway of knowing if we are selected? Fantastic work, it’s so inspiring.

    • Chase May 17, 2011 at 7:27 pm #

      @ anon. The only mechanism to perhaps see your image hanging is to check in often–either on site or here at the blog/twitter, etc, as I’ll often be pointing to images and highlighting some as they hang on the wall. This experience will be fleeting…just like the snapshot, and our lives.

  16. Jitu May 17, 2011 at 5:43 pm #

    Are the pictures on display at the Dasein page the ones selected or are they just a random bunch on display??

    I’d also like to know how we’ll know if one of our pics is selected.

    • Chase May 17, 2011 at 7:26 pm #

      All images that are not naughty will be a part of the digital installation at the InvitationToHang.com site. A selected group will be printed each day and become a part of the physical installation. Hanging in the physical installation is anonymous – your photos, my photos, other famous photographers are all hanging together, on the same playing field solely based on the image and my curation of it. The only mechanism to perhaps see your image hanging is to check in often–either on site or here at the blog/twitter, etc, as I’ll often be pointing to images and highlighting some as they hang on the wall. This experience will be fleeting…just like the snapshot, and our lives.

      Again, thank you so much for participating. It’s an exciting project that wouldn’t be what it is without you and this community.

  17. Jitu May 18, 2011 at 10:21 am #

    Chase… when I try to see the digital installation… I see repeat of some of the images multiple times. If 10 images get repeated twice or thrice in every 100… I am seeing 20-30 less images.

    Why is that happening??

    • Chase May 21, 2011 at 5:53 am #

      what you are seeing is tumblr trying to keep up with the rate at which we’re approving images and adding them to the feed. it’s an amazing product/platform, but it’s not meant to get hammered as hard as this project is hammering it. contrary to how it appears, however, everything is getting in the flow. ;)

  18. Anne Wallace May 20, 2011 at 8:36 pm #

    Is there a certain time that you post the images online for the day? I would like to tell people I meet on the streets and photograph when to go online to see if their image is posted to the thumbnail archive?

    Hope I hear back. I hate to leave these great people hanging.

    cheers,
    Anne

    • Chase May 21, 2011 at 5:51 am #

      @anne: in order for us to keep up with the approvals of imagery we have to almost continuously have someone approving photos. we have people working in both seattle and nyc to review every one of the more than 1000 images that come in every day BEFORE i can even begin curating from that selection what will physically hang in the gallery. so, unfortunately, the answer is no. we can’t tell you when images are going live. but try to think of it as fun to look for your images and –even more importantly–discover OTHER images besides your own. share the love, spread the love. We’re all in this together.

    In the awesome design of things you secure a B- with regard to effort. Exactly where you confused everybody ended up being on all the details. You know, people say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more correct at this point. Having said that, permit me say to you what did do the job. Your writing is certainly extremely powerful and this is possibly why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, although I can see the leaps in logic you make, I am not convinced of exactly how you seem to unite the points that make the actual conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your point but wish in the near future you link the dots better.
