The Journey towards a #MCEsherIspired #MirrorStyle #Selfie Triptych
This series is actually composed of 5 photographs some as blended layers, plus 3 others reimagined by Artificial Intelligent Networks looking for Escher woodcut styling (via Googles Deep dream generator). Looking at the triptych, we move from a single portrait of a phone, but masquerading as a pre-smartphone self-portrait in mirror-image (which is how we usually saw our self-image before social media and smart phones). Then through the strange loop view of looking deep into a reflective virtual sphere, that I appear to be holding, to see my image again but now morphing into an artist’s marks and line work and back into a conventional Instagram era selfie. Or is it?
Hints for the confused :: No filters where harmed (or even used) in the creation of these images,
They are about self-reference and paying homage to the wonderful vision of MC Escher.
