I love using my iPhone camera to explore the landscape: the landscape on the outside and the personal, interior landscape of wordless feeling.
I made this image one day out of an iPhone photo of barbed wire that I morphed into a heart fractal I generated later on the computer. I get great joy of out the process of blending and compositing “real” landscapes into computer-generated images whenever and wherever I find myself with some time to sit down. At home, in a coffee shop, on a park bench…
The process of integrating the experience of loss with the immense new possibilities of the present moment is a daily dance for every human being who has lost one or more of our closest friends or family members. On days when I’m feeling most resourceful, I see the process as “hunting for riches in a landscape lit by sadness.”
How would you describe your process?
