Seaside Diptych

Diptych Design

I created this diptych as a means of remixing an assignment which has you change the color/hue of a photo to make it look surreal. The remix I got for this assignment was “Media Bender:”

“Change up the media for the original assignment- take a video assignment into audio or design.”

I chose this assignment because I had already done it and so had a base to use for remixing. The prompt led to a few interesting ideas, but I decided that if I have to wait for my computer to process anymore videos then I won’t be finishing this week on time. So I took more of a design route for this remix.

While working on the original assignment, I kept thinking about Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Diptych, his most famous art piece in which he used a silk screen to alter the colors of an image and recreate it into a series of colorful renditions. I decided to do something similar on Paint.NET by changing the picture’s hue to several new colors. Then I went a bit further and searched through the different effects that this program has until I found some that I liked and that made the picture look different and new. Once I had 11 new versions of this image, I put them together on a grid and organized them into a cascade of colors, fading into black and white, and eventually falling into sketches.

Do You See Waldo

Vision Remix

For one of my remixes, I got the prompt “Where’s Waldo? It” on my Dusty Dawn image’s assignment in which I put a scene in someone’s eye.

“For this remix assignment, you want to place Waldo somewhere conspicuous in a Visual or Design Assignment or slip his name quickly into an audio assignment. If you can figure out a way to make this work for Video, God Bless You.”

This turned out to be fairy easy, since I just had to find Waldo online and put him in the picture. I went into the original Paint.NET file, dropped him in a new layer, shrank him down, and faded him into the background a little. I didn’t want to get too fancy with it and hide him away in the very back of the picture, though, so he’s just hanging out on the sidewalk. Maybe the owner of the eye was looking and just found him?
