Tossers and their cameras 

My no-brainer post for the day sees camera-toss techniques. I’m fascinated by these, after discovering a series on flags by Shane English at Flickr (then reading about how they were done). They are reminiscent of from the (any Americans remember their CBS movies of the week?) with their sharp, forms repeated through . For some reason, this art form seems very “now”, and it was no surprise to note at a blog named for the technique that there seems to have been a surge of interest.
   Perhaps we have become so sick of things that are all that something that involves —in this case, the literal tossing of a —we now admire for its skill. I know I marvel more these days at the people who make than those who do all their work on a computer, because I know that I could never make those miniatures myself. The age of the may be returning, and this fairly new could be a sign.

"The age of the craftsman may be returning, and this fairly new visual art could be a sign."

What's interesting is that the Internet is truly the engine driving the gathering of communities...it's connecting craftsmen and artists with their communities and audiences, as you suggest. But also movements, social networks, causes and businesses worldwide are similarly bringing together and rallying their communities, voices, members and customers via the power of the Internet.  
Thank you for your comment, Ann: that is very true. And these forces will surely continue. I have renewed faith in the internet.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
