Here, I have made use of the blurring effect on Photoshop, to further distort my collages, as well as colour blocks, adding text and cutting out shapes. I like the colour inserts as I feel this helps balance out the compositions- rather than them being full of repetitious images. They also help draw the eye to the work and influence the mood.
Here, I have used photos from my immediate, personal, environment instead of from interior magazines to produce collages. I like the horizontal lines in ‘nostalgia’- they seem to reflect the quality of old home videos and photo albums. I have been feeling very reflective over the past couple of days and I feel like these collages have unconsciously reflected this.
Getting frustrated by the close proximity of the kitchen to my desk and bedroom, I have produced collages reflecting on how our lives revolve around meals and food, how overwhelming it can sometimes be when we have little else on (especially now during the pandemic).
Here I have made use of the blurring tool on photoshop to further distort my collages. It produces a hypnotic and discombobulating effect which makes it hard to focus on one area of the collage.
Playing around with photoshop settings: light and shade, stamping.
Dystopian SPACE taken literally… Our interior spaces turning into planets, separate entities, separate realms. Our interiors, our world.
