I spent some time this week (too much time, really) tinkering around in Photoshop with one of my old photos. I’ve been meaning to try something like this for a while, and now that I lack a camera (a new one is on the way soon), my mind drifted toward experiments.
I took one of the photos I shot recently of Cat Power, split it up into 96 squares of equal size, and edited the squares independently, without worrying about whether they would match the adjacent squares. Then I reassembled all of the pieces. Click here to see the final photo.
I also arranged the squares into a film. If you’re expecting a Cat Power concert film, you’ll probably be disappointed … think of this of an experimental film. It runs about a minute and a half. Click here to watch the film.
