Dasein Achieving Milestones — More Excitement To Come

Whew. Just a quick note to update you on the Dasein: Invitation To Hang installation and project. In short, it’s still going gangbusters. The definition of gangbusters is open for interpretation, but here’s a few things I know:

_The quality of the work you’ve sent in is amazing, inspirational, and exciting. It breeds optimism of what thousands of talented photographers can create together.
_Hundreds of truly amazing images are still pouring in everyday from professional photographers, celebrities, amateurs, yours truly, some of the most well known shooters in the world, and everything in between.
_There are more than 15,000 images so far into the project which I haven’t taken any time to verify, but I’ve been told is one of the largest such fine art installations ever. And it continues to grow rapidly.
_The installation of our collective work has earned the attention of curators from several of the largest and most prominent Museums in NYC and the world.
_There is participation from more than 150 countries worldwide.

In short, this is larger and more successful that I’d ever imagined. Despite there only being 5 days left to have your images become a part of this project (submission period ends on Friday June 24th at midnight PDT at InvitationToHang.com) I’m getting a strong sense that this will actually be the beginning — a commencement if you will — of something much larger. Legitimate interest from many of the worlds most prestigious fine art institutions has been overwhelming and amazing… Where can we go from here? We’ll know soon enough, but for now, I’m just hoping to continue to see your cool fine art work pouring in.

We’re all in this together.

    This project made me really happy and incredibly angry all at the same time…

    Looking forward to seeing the final result.

    So happy that it has gained such momentum!
    A very cool project to be a part of, and it’s not everyday that us regular folk get to be part of such a ridiculously cool art proj.

    I was in NYC for 4 days the week before last. Stopped into the ACE Hotel a coupe times. Sorry I missed you both time Chase… This whole project is/was a great idea. I tip my hat to you (If I had a hat)!

    Yo Chase (and team) –

    I know you’re not Polaroid tech support, but I continue to be inspired by your exhibit at the Ace and I got my hands on a new GL10 printer. Only problem is, I can’t find the “Polaroid USB Application” that will let me print to it from my MacBook. Like you, I have an iPhone so I’m out of luck there as well (hopefully not for long). Can you point me in the right direction? Much appreciated!

      I usually just print via bluetooth from my mac to the printer. to print using usb, just simply connect the standard usb cable.

    • Cooper Ray June 25, 2011 at 9:25 pm #

      The GL10 is definitely Most Stable via Bluetooth. First be sure to pair it with your computer then just “print” through menubar bluetooth icon using “Send File to…” and select what files you want to go to the printer.

      Polaroid should have a desktop application for better USB support soon.

      Hope this helps! feel free to hit me up on twitter @cooperrayvisual if you have any other GL10 questions :)

    Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i
    was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
