The New Yorker’s Photo Booth blog continues to present evocative applications for imagery generated from the iPhone. The latest, Stefano de Luigi’s iDyssey, showcases iPhone pictures and… audio… and video. A cornucopia of digitally manipulated, soft, textured, vignetted, cross-processed, saturated, and bleached imagery that communicates like a Haiku. The same journey in a different millennium. The timelessness of the sea. Homer’s prose is recorded live in the varied mother tongues. The seductiveness of a piece such as this tells me our thirst — our collective nostalgia — for the old processes and ancient storytelling is clearly alive and well.
