A bit of an explanation on the creation of this visual poem.  I started with photographs of one of my daughter’s  well used marker boards, plus composition shots where I placed a forlorn  PHOTOLIFE magazine (Oct/Nov 2009) and a battered Street Map Book  on top of the  board.  I then used these compositions in combinations modifying layers and sections.

As we drift further & further into the world of digital text, you can see how printed magazines may become artifacts of the past and street maps become an online display combined with GPS. They will just be more Necro-media  to add to the curiosity cabinets & museums of the late 21st century .  Today is constructed out of yesterday. It is the setting of the adventure we are all experiencing. 

For further musing on Mass Media see my recent post , Understanding McLuhan is the Message,  on the Dark Pines Media Literacy blog.

    1. I started with a photo of the torn magazine on top of the marker board. The final image comes closest to the original. I created multiple layers of the original image . Some layers were turned into outlines or embossed versions. In some cases sections were removed from the layers. Some of the layers incorporated textures that I have created. Depending on layer opacity settings and sequence it creates different effects.

      There is no one click and it is done…….. and sometimes the result is a surprise. 😀
