Olloclip Hosts World's Smallest Art Exhibit on Record, A Gallery for Ants

olloclip® (www.olloclip.com), the creator of easy-to-use mobile photography tools, is showcasing A Gallery for Ants - an avant-garde, miniature art exhibition at the Shorebreak Hotel during the US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, Calif., July 31st – August 3rd.

olloclip and award-winning surf and adventure photographer Chris Burkard will be exhibiting, “The World’s Smallest Curated Art Gallery”, featuring Chris Burkard’s photographs in shrunken form. Visitors of the exhibit will view the coin-sized photographs through an olloclip Macro 3-in-1 photo lens attached to a tethered iPod touch, creating this contemporary and playful installation into a multi-layered one-of-a-kind experience.

A Gallery for Ants will feature multiple mobile pedestal installations, designed in a gallery format and shadow box-style with mini benches, ropes, lights and of course, art.

“We’re all fans of Derek Zoolander’s School for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Want To Do Other Stuff Good Too. So our inspiration led to the development of ‘A Gallery for Ants’ to showcase not only great photos, but everything in miniature,” says Tim DeBrincat, olloclip’s director of marketing. “The Macro 3-in-1 photo lens is perfect to get up close and personal and see every detail of Chris’ beautiful photography. And the mini gallery is a great way to experience our range of mobile photo products in an entertaining and memorable environment.”

The olloclip Macro 3-in-1 photo lens is engineered to deliver more edge-to-edge clarity, greater depth of field, nicely diffused light on the image, and less pincushion distortion. The package comes armed with 7x, 14x and 21x magnifications and fits iPhone 5/5s and 5th generation iPod touch with the included adapter. The lenses feature olloclip’s patented design, which allows them to come on and off a device in seconds, and require no additional pieces to work seamlessly with all favorite photo and video apps.
