I was interviewed about mobile creativity by brilliant, inspiring life coach Suzy Greaves, ‘the top ten guru to change your life around’ on the topic of expressing yourself creatively with your iPhone. We talked about why the iPhone is a fantastic tool to harness creativity, what makes art created with your iOS device so unique and why creativity leads to a richer life. You can listen to the interview here.
I'm delighted to introduce Creative iPhoneographer Anne Vilemsons, a student from the first Creative iPhoneography Course who just has had her first iPhoneography art show!
Hello Anne, can you tell us how you come up with the idea for your art show?
When I decided to take this course my ambition was practical – I wanted to learn to use my new iPhone. Quite soon something great and unexpected happened though. When my fellow classmates and Kate gave me feedback on my images - I felt proud, happy and like I had something important to tell through my images. I noticed how long ago it was since I just had fun without any other means than having fun. The art show is a celebration to you Kate, my classmates and the happy artist in me that woke up through this Creative iPhoneography Course.
How do you feel when you're making iPhoneography images?
When I make iPhoneography images the result often amazes me. All these beautiful special effects the Apps can add. I also like that it´s so easy to start up the projects and to end them – save to camera roll and then put the iPhone back in my pocket.
What kind of reactions did you get at your vernissage? How did people respond?
After I had showed my images people started to take photos of their own and asked me which apps to download and how to use them. It was really fun and surprised me. It´s clear that my friends also need more creative activities in their lives.
What are the next steps for your Creative iPhoneography? Are there any particular projects you'd like to focus on next?
My next steps in my Creative iPhoneography will be to learn the apps better and to finish some of the exercises that I didn´t have time to finish during the course. I also want to gather some friends in a creative iPhoneography evening. In the future I hope to meet my fellow students in a new course.
What is your creative advice to others who are inspired but don't know where to start?
Dare to ask for help and be brave.
Anne, thank you so much for this interview! You are such an inspiration, your enthusiasm and talent so infectious! I'm so honoured that you created this art show as a celebration to me, your classmates and the happy artist inside you!

in Stockholm, Sweden
Earlier on this summer I wrote about creative summer space. Enjoying the present, finding creative time and space in unexpected places. Beautiful, creative space that sometimes doesn’t cost anything. Here are some of the highlights from my summer.
This summer I've been inspired by:
- An exhibition of Björn Wessmans colourist landscape challenges on canvases on a monumental scale. At Millesgården which is an experience in itself!
- Balcony gardening.
- Connecting with new and old friends.
- Making homemade pesto and baking grape and rosemary Focaccia.
- A retrospective exhibition of Slas, Stig Claesson (1928–2008), one of Sweden’s most loved authors and artists. At Kulturhuset.
- Taking time offline and quitting Facebook.
- Reading: The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman, Juliet Naked by Nick Hornby, Medicinen by Hans Koppel, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and Macbeth by William Shakespeare.
- Swimming in lake Mälaren. Going for picnics and walks.
- The outdoor film festival at Rålis.
- A boat trip to Drottningholm Palace and the Chinese Pavilion.
- Taking a painting course at Gerlesborgsskolan in Bohuslän.
Siri Derkert (1888–1973). A pioneer of Swedish 20th century art.
Early cubist, modernist paintings, fashion drawings from the 1910s, portraits of children and adults, experiments with materials such as concrete, iron strips and clay are all presented in this major retrospective exhibition at the Modern Museum of Art (Moderna). A show that also paints a picture of the life of multifaceted Siri Derkert.
In her piece 'Ristningar i naturbetong' (Carvings in Natural Concrete) in the underground station at Östermalmstorg in Stockholm, Derkert uses a special sandblasting technique to interweave the personal with the political. The piece thematically revolves around peace, environmental questions, dance, music and rhythm.
The peace movement and feminism were major themes of her work and are as relevant today as they were at the time she explored them in art and sculpture. A very inspiring exhibition!
