Digital Art - Digital Collage
Engraved images from our past strongly evoke ancestral memory in a way that more modern pictures could not: though they appear quaint to our eyes, they evoke an immediate, unconscious sense of recognition in us, even if we have never before seen their subjects. The selection of nineteenth-century wood engravings as source material contributes other levels of intent to collage. The re-use of engravings is a kind of �recycling,� a way of sharing with others the beauty and artistry of pictures that would otherwise have lain unappreciated in decaying books, possibly never to be seen again. Many of these engravings were direct reproductions of photographs, done at a time when our forebears were just learning to perceive and comprehend the planar, photographic vocabulary. Such pictures provide a link between the act of perception in that time and how we perceive today, conditioned as we are to accept the camera�s vision as our own.
