Past work/Example

| No Comments

I don't have many examples to show of past work that will be similar to this project. The first photo I have to show is just an example of past photography I have taken. The second and third picture is a series that was about recreating a past photograph from a photographer. The original is the second picture and the third is the remake.

Techniques

The techniques and programs I will be using for my Digital Focus are photoshop and illustrator. I will be using these programs to create my work. The specific technique i will be doing is recreating textures in nature in an abstract, geometric way.

Materials

| No Comments

The materials that I will be using for my Digital Focus will be supplies for transferring to glass and wood. I want to transfer my designs onto glass and wood to represent my nature theme stronger. To transfer to glass I would need to use lazertran paper for an ink jet printer, water, Alcohol, and to make the image clear oil or spirit based varnish. The lazertran method works for wood as well the only other product i would need would be more glue of real turpentine.

Inspiration for Digital Focus

| No Comments

My Digital Focus is remixing Nature photography to look abstract. The photography will be my own and I will use photoshop to alter the photos and remix them so they do not look like the original. I will then transfer my final images onto glass and wood surfaces. Depending on what the picture looks like will depend on what surface I transfer on. Pictures about wood will be on wood and pictures that are not wood will be on glass.

The Digital Focus has led me to look at other artists for inspiration. Each artist has inspired me in different ways. The many artists that have inspired me for this project are:

Miruna Uzdris- Romanian Artist. The inspiration here is the geometric pattern that looks like a Kaleidoscope. You are looking at something but don't see the original image but you see a different version that has been displaced.

Prabhakara Jimmy Quek- Singapore artist, This work looks like what you would see when looking through a kaleidoscope. The inspiration here is the multi colored brush strokes. The overall look of the painting and not knowing what the picture is what I like about this and want to incorporate in my work. The use of the imagination.

Van Gogh- The basis as to what I want my work to look like is inspired from Van Gogh. I want my work to have the same texture and look of texture as his. I like the feeling that you want to touch his work. The visible brush strokes and multiple colors is how this texture is so dynamic.

Adrienne Adam- She works and photographs patterns and textures in nature. I like her subject matter and how she photographs texture.

Mindy Lighthipe- Her piece that represents Fungus represents what I want to achieve with this project. Her design is a close up of what fungus would look like and what the colors could be. At first glance it is a very close up look and we aren't very sure what we are looking at but if you were to have a picture next to it that was fungus or know the title you would be able to understand what you were looking at.

Vis Lab Windows

| No Comments

I was part of the group that put up an installation in the Vis Lab windows. I thought our installation went very well. We all worked together very well. The installation was created by Heidi. For our installation we took three different size pictures and put them in a grid formate in the windows. There were both black and white and colored images. We ended up using squares that were 11x11, 9x9 and 8x8. We filled three windows with images but we still left room to see through to the inside of the vis lab. The vis lab was nice enough to let us print our images with their printer. Going into the spring months we will change the images to relate to spring and be more colorful and cheerful for the spring time.
