The inventors of a simple iPhone tripod raised $140,000 almost instantly when they announced to the world they wanted to provide an easy way to take quality shots. The iPhone 4 is literally the best camera weve ever owned, they explained, and maybe thats the idea at the heart of Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts Pixels: The Art of iPhone Photography. Goofy filters aside, the idea that high-quality cameras are in everybodys pocket is kind of nice. Is anything we want to look at now instantly transformable into art? Yes, and thats the happy part of a society in which everything is filmed by everybody all the timeand sometimes, some of it is pretty!
