Photo-Quilting

Boundaries

On assignments and during personal work I have always collected the occasional visual morsel or snippet. Textural bits, specs of light, natural compositions find their way into my ever-growing visual scrapbook.

This weekend I started dicing and splicing single images in order to enhance their graphic appeal and found the results rather intriguing.

While quilting is an old craft of using bits of left-over fabric to turn into geometric and graphic pattern bedspreads, quilts, etc., photo-quilting looks to me like a creative way of using visual bits to craft new and unusual images.

Watch this space.

The most enjoyment I get from using my camera phone on these little journeys of creative discovery.

Seeing something, taking a picture and then pulling it through the various app filtrations and effects to find a suitable match. Often being surprised by the failure and the success.

Keep discovering!
