sometimes mistakes are made...

mistakescan

so much of my work comes from mistakes, and finding potential in the results of accidents and the unintended... in this case my scanner was set to enlarge a small image of a drum head in a photo of a band, but i changed the photo and didn't look at the settings and hit the "scan" button...the resulting image above is something i'd never have made intentionally...but it reminds me a bit of one of strindberg's photos... and it seemed a good time to inject a little abstraction into the weekend...

that is very nice, i scan so much and get these mistakes that are so beautiful, always wonder if some artist out there documented them.
good computer art...

i like the idea that this is computer art... where it becomes about the tool's mistakes rather than a look or a style... :-)

i forgot the poet that would spell words wrong in poems, then use spell check and pick words that had different meanings.
