Clouds of Paint and Walls of Water

In the series ‘Clouds of paint and walls of water’ I worked with the idea of our inventions taking over in a more direct way. The series is based on a distortion in my computer that accidentally created 16 new images, by seemingly random putting parts of photos from different files together. I say seemingly random as it seemed, after taking a closer look at the files that there where similarities in color or atmosphere in the parts that were combined. Inspired by these images I started putting parts of photos from different files in my computer together too. Parts that originally didn’t have any connection, but pure by their appearance seemed to match. The clouds are drawn after abstract details of old paintings that I thought looked like skies or clouds. Using these refers also to the idea of make believe, that connects to the idea of a second layer of reality.
