I started out with a vague plan. The main point was to be organized. I would list things to try, try those things, record and document the results. Then I would further pursue the ideas I liked best.
As usual, I am easily distracted and often head down the proverbial rabbit hole. So instead of a pseudo-scientific organized study of variant ideas, the result is a collection of distractions.
I do not have time to start over while this blog remains idle. So I will try to impose some organization while posting what I have.
It has been a week since my last post. I need to get started again.
The story so far: In
I explored simple white on black shapes. In
Monochrome Minimalism #2 I listed some ideas about how to enhance the monochrome shapes.
Then in Experiement 2023.1
I explored a few of those ideas.
In this Experiment 2023.2 series I continue with those experiments.
This is an experiment in shifting color planes in Experiment 2023.1 #15.
Simple mis-aligned rgb planes looked too cheap. Here I make the size of the
shift proportional to the intensity of the color, and then blend in the
Inverting colors in Experiment 2023.1 #14 Resulting in a white background.
Increasing color saturation in Experiment 2023.1 #13.
This series started with various decorations, mainly colorings, of simple shapes. I moved away from the simpler wispy, ghostly shapes adding sharp lines/outlines. This one has a little of each.
The next few posts feature and assortment of digital manipulation of this base image.
High contrast, with colorful thin lines separating smaller regions. This one seems a long distance from where the series started. Yet, I think I can trace the steps that led from there to here.
I am not going to list those steps, nor am I going to continue down this path today. But this is definitely going into my “revisit” pile, and may become the start point in a future series.
Similar shape as with Experiment 2023.1 #10. This one feels like a neon party.
Here is one with an ominous and ghostly feel.
