I've done a significant amount of experimenting during the past three months. I decided to get away from photoshop for the moment, to see what other ideas come to the surface. Specifically, this experimenting brought me the surface of the work. I began playing with untraditional substrates in my printer and seeing what results. To focus on this process, I worked with more abstract imagery. To get this imagery, I used digital pinhole photography. Pinhole photography doesn't use a lens, so the images are generally blurry. I'm exploring how the digital and physical world interact; not in the controlled, predictable way, but in a very hands-on way. I'm interested in touching the imagery I work with, to pull on it and stretch it and layer it, manipulate it. It's been an interesting and liberating experience!
