Mimicking Life for Display



Day two of the free e-course Deepening Creativity and I'm not quite sure that I'm letting my authentic self come through yet. I still feel like I'm trying to control the outcome of these collage exercises. However, that being said, this image is not one I would normally create. The colours, the disjointed subjects that I was led to, the lack of cohesiveness...Still, when I look at it , the elements seem to reflect a lot of my thinking...looking, connecting the dots, sharks, cryptic cards, all viewed by the observer through a viewmaster.

One of the hardest parts of this is exercise is ripping images out of some old photography books I have (even though they are doubles and are about a lost art). Then again, I even have trouble tearing pictures out of magazines.

Although I did say it was Day 2 , I must admit both yesterday's image and today's were created before I even got the first lesson. Tomorrow will be real homework!

...Well as long as you're connecting the dots. My most important AHA moment came after several days of collaging.
