My decomposition looks almost nothing like my original (experiment 1). The very top of the page is the only part directly copied and altered from the original. There were two aims for this piece:
1) to take some of the key images of my original work and make them more abstract. I wanted to remove the quote from the immediate context of the book.
2) to experiment with my scanner. I don’t have the best scanner in the world but I wanted to see what details the scanner would pick up and leave out, what shadows it would create, if I manipulated the paper by crumbling it, bending, layering, etc.–to varying degrees of “success.” The piece is one sheet of paper about the size of the original, plus the text which I layered under (and therefore over) it.
