Last year artist Rob Pruitt became fascinated by his iPhone and its ability to document aspects of everyday life from the most mundane to the most revealing. Following in the footsteps of Andy Warhol, who intently chronicled his world through tape recordings and filled up numerous time capsules with his items from his everyday life, Pruitt has documented a-day-in-the-life-of-the-artist everyday for a year since purchasing the phone. He refers to the iPhone as "an extra brain in my pocket" as well as a "sketchbook for someone who doesn't draw."


Rob Pruitt was born in 1964 in Washington, DC and lives and works in New York. His work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad since the early 1990s. His latest project, "IPhotos" is on view at Gavin Brown's enterprise in New York City through October 11, 2008.

Now in its 14th year, The Public Art Fund Talks is an ongoing series of discussions and presentations by some of today's most influential artists, critics, and curators. This event is presented by the Public Art Fund in association with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.
