Scanner Images

             When digital photography originally came into being, artists thought of them as the same  as copy machines, using scanners to capture old photographs.  But the scanner does much more than a copy machine could do.  It captures depth of field, the feeling of 3 dimensions. 

          To create these images, objects were organized on the scanner.  The resulting still life was created in reverse.  Requiring that the artist think of what is under the image rather than what is on top.  Keeping the objects in place is a challenge, but it also gives the images a little randomness that adds to the final outcome. One is never sure of how it is going to look until it is actually scanned.  Then it can be changed, but it does not always exactly stay in place.  The result is always a surprise.
