"An Image has the power to adapt its story to both viewer and time."
J. van Bart
What does my work mean?
The greatest power an image possesses is the ability to adapt itself to both viewer and time. The same image can have a totally different meaning for two different people since every person is unique in memories, dreams and experiences. The same can be said for the same image on different occasions. To explain What meaning I used to create an image weakens this power and rather than poisoning your mind with my take on things I invite you to find your own meaning.
At art-school we got an assignment to copy a famous painting in the original measurement and later one that we had to copy but make it larger than the original and ofcourse your example is just an A4 printout. From experience I can tell you that there is a lot of math involved in getting the right aspectratio, using as much of your canvas as possible or calculating where an eye needs to be placed. After getting blisters on my fingers from using a calculator, i decided to write an easy piece of code to help myself and others with this process. Follow the link below to check it out. And if you as an artist are faced with a problem that can be solved with code, do not hesitate to contact me.Calculate tool
