A series involving creating collage compositions from magazine cutouts (mostly old issues of Wired).
The goal here was to just make something with a foreground, middle ground, and background.
The mechanical elephant is The Sultan's Elephant from Royal de Luxe, with the side balconies and overhead canopy removed. The sky is part of the interior of a factory. The mountain and flats are actually from two separate car ads.
The object in this one was to do something with "extraordinary scale" - hence the frog. The tower is the Suite Vollard apartments in Curitiba, Brazil, the world's first spinning building. The spaceman is from a weird image I found (some more of it is in another of my collages) whose context I forget. The black field on the right is not part of the original piece - the original edge is deliberately irregular.
Feetball from Mars
The task here was to do something with negative space - hence the negative skyline of pre-2001 New York. The rest is a weird assortment of imagery, from articles about terraforming Mars, to ads about environmentally sustainable technology, and more. There's a total of 5 distinct elements in this one. As with Frog Tower, the original piece has an irregular edge on the right - the black field is not part of it.
