Keith Haring Polaroid Digital camera – The Artsology Weblog

I used to be searching the shop at MoMA after I noticed this curious object: a Keith Haring Polaroid digicam. It’s fairly cool, I suppose; I like how the long-lasting crawling child is on the entrance and the black-and-white line drawings are on the again. However my first thought was: what’s the purpose? Is it only a case of the artist’s property searching for a licensing deal? However I discovered that there’s a twist to it that I believe makes it extra fascinating – somewhat than simply having Keith Haring’s imagery on the digicam, one may also purchase “Keith Haring Edition” film packs, which even have Keith Haring designs on the precise print edges. It’s a novel concept for certain, I don’t recall seeing Polaroid do something like this with different artists earlier than.

It positively appears to be a well-liked product, as each the digicam and the movie look like offered out, each on the MoMA retailer web site in addition to the Polaroid web site. I ponder in the event that they’ll produce extra? Perhaps I ought to have purchased that one on the MoMA retailer after I had the prospect! Trying again, I keep in mind actually wanting to purchase a Keith Haring Swatch watch after they got here out within the late Nineteen Eighties, however not having $100 (on the time) to purchase it – now I see them promoting on-line for $1,000 or extra.
