Macro-me


Took Linda's advice and tried a macro picture with my Sony point and click. This is the tiny statchoo that inspired my soaker picture. It's a jolly peach color and about 1 1/2 inches high.

But look! The soaker picture is already in a museum. Must be MOCA in L.A., which is in danger of closing. They'll take anyone, I've heard.



No actually it's thanks to mean jean, who pointed out this cool site, dumpr: you upload a picture and choose a museum setting. It says something about how size of art is a corollary to importance in the contemporary art world. Just gotta make it big enough and hang it on a white wall. Uncomfortable benches may add to the effect.

For a second I was fooled by the museum photo. I thought wow, I didn't know that was from a museum. I thought it was something she sketched on her computer....
Then I read the text and figured out what was going on.
Say, where's the dog statue from? Did you sculpt it?

Ha! That is so great!

did you see on that site you can make your art into jigsaw puzzles and other things, too?

Glad you've all had fun with the frames. The drop shadows make them perfect.

thanks for stopping by, Gil!

I don't think we should expose Katy to any more of these techniques.
