Abstract

"Everything in color has beauty, but not everyone can see it.” In all areas of my life, specifically my three years of graduate school, every accomplishment I had started with an aspiration to try a new experience or work in a different medium. This reality has become even more evident in the work I chose to produce for my Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition. This series, Digital Kaleidoscopes, is a composition of original work that infuses my graphic design skills with newly acquired photographic tools. The theme behind my body of work is creating patterns and design using photographic manipulation to introduce human qualities into the images. I hope to give a conscious, living identity to an otherwise, lifeless object. In doing this, I will allow the viewer to conceptualize a process-oriented approach of these images to enhance an aesthetically pleasurable experience. With the perceptual motivation for this new style of digital art, I have created an alternate visual identity as a designer. This allows me to present several approaches for composing abstract photographs, and sparking human insight through the use of alternative visual perception.
