Untitled - 8x16 inch digital collage
Over the past few days, Michele and I have been trading email images that began as an Exquisite Corpse collaborative project in our group, The Recollection Parlor. The image began as an anatomical drawing of a heart. Michele then added the second anatomical drawing of the surgically altered torso (first image above) and sent it back to me. Last night and this morning, I completed the collage (second image above) It is packed full of symbols and personal meaning to me. I had considered writing about each element, but believe it's best left for the viewer to make their own interpretations. Creatively, I did consider several elements of design, most prominantly on my mind was continuity and repetition, having recently reviewed some of my notes from a course I took at Emily Carr last winter.
