Story

Basic Hypothesis: Prerequisites for creative images are a perfect managing of digital technologies and their playful handling. Initial Question: Do images arise in our minds and photographs in a black box? Approach: All pictures are screenshots made with an iPhone 4 during several processes of postproduction directly on the phone. Texts and symbols, generated from the software, in combination with the original photography create a new image with a different message. As an example of: What does an artist in a circus do? Should be crossed legs straighten out? Has the Cuban flag a new look or should political conditions being saved? Findings: Picture's message depends on our local environment and our experiences we make. For deeper perspective, please see the uploaded files.
