In previous posts, I have written about the tactile, sensory richness of collages made from images pasted on paper. In moving from this physical form of collage to a digital form, I have lost much of this richness.
However, while I have regretted the loss of the direct sense of touch in physical collage, I have enjoyed exploring and enhancing image elements through the medium of digital collage. It has offered me the chance to discover creative possibilities not easily possible through direct physical collage.
Below are a source image from a nineteenth-century photograph and two of the many ways to reinterpret that image.
