I tried something new this spring - combining my digital photos with digitized versions of dissolved-ink art I created. I used old National Geographic magazines, and poured a solvent on the pages, and was amazed at some of the results. Many of them suggested landscapes or scenes having nothing to do with the original photos printed on them. Going a step further, I took photos of the papers, and then combined them with my own original photos. I got some very interesting results! It was a great thing to do while I couldn't travel and when the local parks were closed...In fact, it seemed like a metaphorical activity at the time: society as we knew iit seemed to be dissolving, and it is up to us to create something new from what's there.
