My first look at photo shop.

Detail of the woven work….

Uni has encouraged me into my first taste of photoshop.

I played with ‘still life’ type images and so started with 2 very similar images. 3 blue glass jars and a stainless jug…. and 3 glass jars and some negative/positive shadow effects.

Once these images were together, I printed them out and sliced them, so I could weave them together (craft paper style) to make a new image.

More woven effects on the light box.

After weaving them back together I photographed them on the light box and enjoyed the effects…..

The original work.

The weaving gave me the idea to ‘re-pixalate’ the image.

Cutting it into small squares I then mounted them in little plastic ‘vitrines’.

After this I stitched them in and joined them together into a necklace.

After making the necklace I photographed it on the light box to create something new again.

….aligned on the light box. The stripy background was just how the light box photographed. Interesting huh.
