I went abstract with the Prompt to depict a welcoming spacefrom which to create in the future. Note: WP fucked with my type again!
The sky blazing with sunset. A shell with her boundaries and her secrets. And a leaping big cat with a body of prose.
The collage speaks to time, self, and energy, rather than to space.
I spent part of today at Staples, hoping to have fun making shiny copies of some of the last month’s collages. I transferred images from phone to a thumb drive in advance, but turns out the machine needed pdf’s and mine were jpeg. A young guy helped with the conversions. That took awhile.
A few pix were weirdlyformatted (HEIC?). He speculated: an apple format designed not to be compatiblewith anything. Printer guy smiled whenI muttered, “the fuckers.”
But the real disappointment was the copier itself. On the former color copier I could adjust for scale (necessary to make SoulCollagecards) and could play with color saturation.
Not anymore.Just print. Plus each print required four button presses, each with theirdragging delay. More if I wanted a preview.
You can email pix to a staples website, too, so Itriedthat after a while. You email pix to their site and they shoot you a code and you input it and go from there. But sinceI chose medium resolution (thinking higher would take forever), the results were disappointing.
There youcan see my nifty phone-jacked thumb drive.
Why is it that so many technologicaladvances strip out features that were critical to an interesting and satisfying result?
