Carl McKinney

Visual Artist, Photographer, Designer

What type of visual story does a year tell? That was the question Carl McKinney set out to answer with his ambitious project entitled #instacalendar.

With the proliferation of mobile devices in our lives, their inconspicuous convenience, and their technological prowess these devices are not only shaping the way we communicate but shaping the way we create. Additionally, connected services, like instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr are providing almost innumerable ways for people to share these images to the broader creative class.  

Through this set of conditions was where the original idea for #instacalendar was born.  To push the creative use of these technologies Carl set out to accomplish a completely mobile experiment using only the tools of today.
