Louis Pingitore exhibits "Color Scapes" at CCTV's Karen Aqua Gallery, through January 13, 2013. The public is invited to an opening reception on December 12 from 5:30-7:30.
"This series of 'Color Scapes' are original photographic compositions that reflect
the fluid nature of light, color, shape and line when stripped of their original form.
These 'Color Scapes' invite the viewer to consider other possibilities of the visual
structure of our world and to inspire a more expansive way of perceiving reality,
form, and color by highlighting what we see with what can be imagined. The
process employed is an in-camera technique using a hand held camera, a single
exposure and natural directional light. Photoshop has not been used, no effects
have been added and minimal editing of color saturation and balance has been
done post-production. While keeping the shutter open, the camera deconstructs
a subject’s visual elements and reassembles them into alternate worlds of
mutated structures and laws. The captured moment reveals a parallel universe in
which reality and possibility commingle playfully until the shutter is closed. The
merging and clashing of color and tone, line and shape, light...

PARK(ing) Day is an annual global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. PARKing Day was September 21, 2012.
For PARK(ing) Day, CCTV's NeighborMedia project built an outdoor multimedia newsroom featuring a variety of portable, easy to use, media making tools! We engaged passersby to create short videos, blogs and photos about their vision for Central Square planning and development by exploring the following questions:
What would you like to see in Central Square in 10 years?
What would you like to see tomorrow in Central Square?
What do you like about Central Square?
What’s missing from Central Square?
What’s your favorite square in Cambridge and why?
Big thanks to the City for coordinating this effort, and to the MIT Center for Civic Media for working with us to use their tool, vojo.co, a mobile blogging platform designed to make it easy to post content to the web from mobile phones via voice calls, SMS, or MMS. You don't need a smart phone or an app to post blog entries - any phone will do.
