"My Powers of Ten"

Here are some pieces from my graduate collection......
I started my research by documenting the scars on my body and where, how and when I got them. I then found great inspiration from the film ‘Powers of Ten’ a 1977 short documentary film written and directed by Ray Eames and her husband, Charles Eames.

I represented the scale effect the film illustrates in the prints by layering imagery on top of each other. I used glow in the dark particles to create the effect of one image merging into another. The glow particles are near invisible in the light resulting in entirely different print in the dark.
