So I happened to be looking at one/two of my earlier posts, Observed Encounter Between Water &Rock and I took a screen shot. Inspired by Ashley’s post, Abstract Square #1, I started manipulating the textures using a polished stone effect and a detail-stylizer effect. Ashley uses her camera-phone to take wonderful minimalist & surreal compositions of her surroundings, finding art in the odd corners of her environment. I looked at the constructed reality of the blog page and reimagined it as a physical surface and then framed these surfaces within the context of old photographic processes – they became digital representations of older types of photographs, that captured the constructed reality of digital images turning into a physical surface.
My screen-shot included icons from community members. Bloggers included here are Nia(private blog), Photobooth Journal, Harrienijland, A Nomad in Cyberspace, Slippery Edge ( art magazine), Jennspoint, Ananya Learns to Julley , Herman van Bon Photography , A Certain Line, – please note that there is one icon unidentified; I am unsure as to what blog is represented .
The whole process demonstrates the Mass Media Principle that I refer to as Necro-Media. Mass Media consumes itself. One form of Mass Media turns another into content. It may also attempt to imitate/emulate the codes & conventions of another medium.
Hope you found this experiment in re-combining Mass Media of interest. Clicking the links will let you access the other blogs in a new browser tab. Clicking the images will let you see them in larger detail.
