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.
