Cities are cool.
Who doesn’t like traveling to a new city?
But there is one thing about cities…
Many of them tend to be quite symmetrical.
That is why, on the first four images, I used a double-mirror effect.
As you can see from these last few, you can get some interesting art out of a single mirror effect.
But if I had added one more, they would be better.
Many of us live in one.
That guy is leading one weird parade.
I am going to enjoy this next part.
So, let’s see. Art in general is a media, right? And glass blowing, the manner in which I made this paperweight in the first place, is a specific sub-genre of art in general. Taking the super-close-up-macro-zoom photo, well, photography is a media. And then I did the double mirror image thing in Photoshop, and digital art is a media. And I used another program altogether to make the moving water reflection thing happen. And now, I am posting it on my blog, and blogging is a media. I am also typing words, which is a media.
So, that would be… uh… a whole lot of medias.
And wouldn’t multi medias be medii???
“How the heck did you do that???”, I hear you asking in astonishment. Well, let me tell you.
These are all double mirror images… by which I mean I did the mirror image thing twice on each photo…
And the photos are all the same picture I took when I was playing around with the macro lenses and doing super close up photography…
… of that paper weight that was the first project I did in my glass blowing class, lit up from below with colored LED lights, in a dark kitchen.
That right there is the original photo before the mirror image magic.
