Growing annually on the back of Morpholio Project’s award winning portfolio presentation app and community, Morpholio, EyeTime 2014 was created by photographers, professors and students to bring attention to the incredible pool of talent currently engaged in the photographic community. In the current digital age where so many images have moved to the screen, artists everywhere have been searching for outlets to see, experience and share life in ways that still captivate everyone. Not only has the rise social networking culture and cloud technology blurred the lines of human connection, but has also set new grounds for photographic processes and production techniques. EyeTime 2014 is calling all student and emerging photographers to test the boundaries of how they operate.

Highlighting the incredible technology and talent of the Morpholio Project itself, a group of finalists will be selected through the “EyeTime” competition app, created by Morpholio, The app records public viewing time. The amount of seconds that the photos earn will be accounted into the final decisions. The guest jury will then select the final winners from each of the categories based on this viewing time. To see the amazing tools offered by the Morpholio Project check out this quick video.
Morpholio began as a research project by architects who simply wanted amazing tools for their devices. The group wondered, what would happen if the focus of software development shifted away from production alone and towards the need to cultivate and assess ideas. Designers have tools that allow them to generate millions of options, but few that help to select the right ones. “Aside from making design production easier, we wanted to know if better tools could make it smarter by integrating the wisdom of crowds and capitalizing on the power of the touchscreen to capture feedback,” says Anna Kenoff, Morpholio Co-Creator.
