We Control the Horizontal and the Vertical by NeuronPlectrum We Control the Horizontal and the Vertical by NeuronPlectrum
Some filler I'd had mulling around in my head I finally got to put together. I'd found some discarded paperwork with these huge shipping barcodes on them, and I wanted to do something involving corrugated cardboard, a kind of revisit of a really old collage piece I'd done called Speaker


I wasn't sure whether to scan it or try photographing it. I figured scanning would get a little more detail, but might lose some of the color and texture. On the other hand, I haven't quite perfected my copystand (which is just my tripod at a weird angle with whatever lighting scheme I can throw together). I ended up photographing it, and after playing around with the white balance and exposure, I ended up using one of the scene modes, which worked best with the colors of the materials.
The background the cardboard is set on is just an old furnace filter that our maintenance guy took out but never took with him. I liked the thin wire grid on the back with the straw-like material. It had a rather eerie, rustic quality, not to mention a nice change of pace from using black posterboard.
