Chase Jarvis At Ace Hotel: Collaborative Photo-Art Project
Photographer solicits snapshot submissions from hotel guests and web users.
PSFK dropped by the Ace Hotel today to meet innovative photographer Chase Jarvis and his team as they were finalizing the set up of a new installation in one of New York’s most creative spaces.
Jarvis’ project ‘Dasein: An Invitation to Hang‘ is a crowdsourced photo project where visitors to the hotel can photograph themselves with Polaroid cameras and add their pictures to a gallery of hundreds of images. A dedicated Tumblr will accept digital submissions – which will appear on the rotating screen of an iPad in the exhibition and a few of which will be printed and added each day to the evolving collage.
