Hello everyone! GOOD TO SEE YOU ALL, YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So like really, omg, no like seriously, but no, I can’t, yes, I cannot believe this is possible, no really it is, but no, HOW?!?!
This work of art, titled “Withered Away” depicts the icon of the technology industry, Steve Jobs in various states of visualizations. This is the most expensive art project I have done because what I did here was use a copy printer. First, I found a good quality picture of Jobs and then printed it out, which is that you see in the first row starting at the upper left corner. Then I took this original image and used the printer’s scanner to scan the original image and print out the copy. As you have already most likely guessed, the next image did not turn out to be of matching quality to its predecessor. I did this repetition until I got twenty picture of consequently decreasing quality. Then I digitized the copies with another scanner from a better quality printer and sent the files to my laptop. I cropped the scanned images in Photoshop and put together the square of twenty scans. Of course, I had to then edit the whole picture but here is how it looks without any editing:
I called this work “Withered Away” because it is supposed to represent Steve Jobs during the last years of his life before he died of cancer. The deterioration of the image or scan represents the destruction that Job’s cancer had imposed on him. The colors represent the different phases of his life, since we all have them to a degree.
