Plastic clocks don’t cost too much, so I bought a bunch of them with the idea to create my own faces out of photographs. In all I made twelve different clocks and gave them away as gifts to friends and family.
Found this photograph from seven years ago. It may not look like much, but it is… I was at a local observatory photographing the moon through a telescope when I noticed something bright in the sky. As it turns out, comet Holmes had suddenly outburst becoming much brighter than usual. This was the largest known outburst by a comet.
I bought a fog machine at a local Halloween store thinking it had potential to be art. That night I filled my bedroom with fog and made a digital projection with a lot of movement and color. It was really soothing to lay on the ground and look up at this. Some kind of memorizing or hypnotic effect to it… Might be hard to get this kind of work accepted in a lot of galleries.
Sir John Herschel discovered the cyanotype process for making photographs. His hair is out of control… I Photoshopped out all his hair from an old portrait and made a cyanotype on special Asian paper that turns black when wet. The final product is a fun parlor game where you get to “paint” in Herschel’s crazy hair, let it fade away, and paint it again.
