About "Backbeat," an iPhone 3Gs photo exhibit by Star Rush
This recent body of work by the artist explores the experience of shared alienation and a longing for the other in contemporary urban life. The rhythm of the streets, the pace of life, is rife with improvisation and serendipity for the artist, who captures her images with only an iPhone.
Using predominantly public spaces, Rush enjoys the creative stimulus that sometimes comes with constraint, such as using the unassuming mobile phone, with its limited camera and photo apps. The iPhone allows the artist an intimacy and immersion in the world she is trying to describe.
