The Weight of Nothing
PART III Realization of Photo Digital Art Using small reference prints of the ghost town building interiors as guides, I match the lighting of the preexisting background to the new prop that will reside in that room. My studio is haunted with toys and models and dolls and creepy things. The final images have coalesced in my head. I download my studio photos to the computer and begin the intricate cutting and pasting process. While constructing my new realities I felt the same sense of wonder I had when photographing those ghost town rooms. Now I’m moving away from the shared reality of tourists-in-a-ghost-town to something new. There is a sense of discovery in the process; I cannot wait to get to work in the mornings. The images are textured and distressed, colors are desaturated, focus is altered. Everything from the title of the image to the paper it will be printed on is accounted for. Ultimately I completed twenty.
(continued) I’ve traveled a road from straight photography to these pictures, modern digital art -with a vintage look. I credit my creative forebears for blazing the trail I followed until I left the map. If you should find that ghost town, it won’t look like this.
