Day Twenty-Five: Assembly Required

Monday, February 25th: Tear it up

Today we're going to look at abstracting images through deconstructing them a bit. Starting with a printed image that is fairly tight on its subject, tear the print up into smaller pieces and reconstruct the subject in a different order. See what kinds of new shapes you can make, try doing it with multiple copies of the same image. Once you've got a composition you like, rephotograph it and move on. Try for 5-10 during the day. 

If you've just joined us, February is a 28 day creativity challenge with a new "prompt" each day to get you thinking in new ways. The goal is to just have fun, don't try to control too much, feel free to use a cell phone or any camera that's easy for you. Don't worry about the end results. With each prompt you can take it literally or not, you can wing it, google it, ask for people's opinions...whatever you want to do is perfect. Bottom line - it's supposed to be fun, there are no right or wrongs.
