Photo Essay – Four Collages

We are hard at work here in Haliburton. This week, the idea is to combine photography with various ways of producing art, including collages, silkscreen prints and books. The first assignment involved collages and I’ve been working on some ideas around this for a while. My initial idea was to take a photograph of the chaos of nature, domesticateĀ it into a geometrical shape (e.g. a triangle), organize it into a pattern like a kaleidoscope and then distort it to restore an element of chaos. you can see that with the first two images. Then, I started looking for interesting shapes that could be put through the same process and ended up with a sailboat and some farm buildings. Let me know what you think.
