Digital Collages 001

Yay!

As I promised on this post, here they are some of my first digital collages that I created thanks to the useful sources found on Hitrecord. I wanted to make some digital experiments on classic vintage photos using my signature crochet mask, and this is the result.

As I already explained for my handmade crochet collages, this project is directly inspired to “Uno, Nessuno e Centomila” (One, No One and One Hundred Thousand) novel by Luigi Pirandello. The “identity loss” of the main character Vitangelo Moscarda, is a smart analysis on how the perception of ourselves can be so different through the eyes of the others.

This is an ongoing series, I will show you just the first batch of images that I realized and then release other next week. I hope you enjoy and please let me know what do you think!

 

Hitrecord – Childhood Collaboration 006

Childhood Collab!

This is the last batch of collages realized for this project. I hope you enjoy!

I experimented through the Hitrecord website on vintage portraits that users share on this portal. For the first time I wanted to work on images of people that can recognize themseves in the pictures. This was a big challenge, I was terrified by the idea to manipulate a portrait of someone that is part of the memories “attached” to it. I wanted to create a connection between the images and also to give to these photos a personal interpretation.

The result is a body of work composed of 64 postcard sized photo reproductions of 5 selected retro portraits. I will put them in little groups of 10 or so. The project is part of the Childhood collaboration.
