Shrinking, a series of phtomontages



Shrinking, is a series of photomontages that were made with a digital camera and a computer. Various people and/or objects were photographed and placed into a computer, where they were isolated from the original scene they were in. The people and/or objects were then copied, reduced in size, pasted over the original image, and reduced and copied again and again until the original isolated image was very small relative to it’s original form, and the entire new form drastically changed. In some cases the original person or object was placed back into the original scene, and in some cases keep isolated onto a neutral background. In all cases, the intent was to create a totally unexpected and original image by altering the familiar into the unfamiliar.
