Investigation Seven

This investigation stems directly from my Typo-Photo class that I currently teach at VCU. Since that class is a direct link to my Thesis ideas, I decided to do the same assignment I gave my students. Read more about this assignment here.

My three randomly chosen limitations are:

36 degree angles.
Must change mediums 5 times
Make it useless.

I decided to use my "Let Forever Be" information visualization from my workshop class as the source material for this investigation. My process was as follows:

1) I called up the website with my visualization on it.
2) I then printed that to letter size paper (medium change one).
3) I determined what a 36 degree angle was, and collaged the paper together into a composition.
4) I then photographed this collage (medium change two).
5) After bringing these photos into the computer, I processed and composited them in Photoshop (medium change three).
6) I then printed them back out on my laser printer (medium change four).
7) Last, I bound them into an accordion book (medium change five).
8) My final step was to then bind the book on both sides, rendering it unreadable, and therefore, useless.
