Mini Artworks Made From Polaroids
Earlier this year I got in contact with 50 different emerging and unknown artists and asked them to send an artwork for us to put an analog spin on. We used a camera, the Instant Lab Universal, which transforms digital smartphone images into instant analog polaroid photographs. The results we got were great and the artists loved seeing their mini artworks.
‘I feel that the analog film changes my concept for the artworks in that there is an older fashioned twist on these more modern artworks and gives the art a more natural tone.’ – Greg from GetGlitched
Artists featured on the Tumblr so far include: Luis Nessi, Mitsumi Flores, Eric Dyer, Daria Golab, Daliah Ammar and Giacomo Carmagnola.
Our hope is that in the future we can collaborate with even more artists. Due to the analog nature of the film, no two artworks will ever be alike – unlike digital reproductions/prints or copies, these are real photos that you can hold in your hand, display in your studio, or create merchandise to sell.

“Analog vs digital is a tough debate. My heart is closer to the analog but I often choose digital because it’s more affordable. Although mixing the two adds a new soul and a new voice in discussion.”

“I have always used both digital and analog processes and one will not completely dissolve into the other. This as an example of that, digital and analog working in unison.”
