oooooooo there is something amazing happening here
@carboncopy22 ugh thank you for saying that--- I feel like there is also something but I don't have a printer so it's taking me forever to explore it.
@joettamaue please pursue it! It’s special. Is this a collage? Or did you do they cut and paste digitally?
@carboncopy22 this is a cut out from a print on the wall. I've also done a few where it's just cut out digitally on white paper. I like the idea of the wall--- the photo as object or installation. I think it also invites some discourse with scale...which seems more compelling to you?
@joettamaue at first I thought I was more interested in having the cut out on actual paper. So the empty space of the paper became a question, a hidden environment. But the wall now sounds very intriguing. If the wall housed several cut outs, they would begin to converse with one another and could make for a really interesting narrative. Maybe the cutouts can find themselves in Public spaces or out of the ordinary walls aside from white?
@carboncopy22 def was thinking multiple cut outs on same wall... For that idea of connection or narrative. I definitely see it as potential installation where the images are responding to the place/walk in the way they sit . But I had not thought of not a white wall. Intriguing. I think I'm going to Pursue both as they talk about space & place & negative space in very different ways. I feel excited but frustrated I don't have a printer --- but the ink!!! So expensive.
@joettamaue the printer part is rough. Could always make work prints via some cheap company like Shutterfly, CVS, target - just so you can play.
Shutter fly that's an idea. Staples is such a pain. 🙄 I'm normally able to print at UMASS Boston but don't have a class this semester. Ergh
