life is what you make of it
Are you taking?
Are you giving?
Are you stranded?
Lost in a sea of your own mind
You are right where you are supposed to be
Right when you are needed
It’s all about your frame of reference.
You have the power to shift it at will.
Sometimes you are the universe,
and sometimes the universe is you.
here’s lookin’ at you, kid
Re-contextualized, simplified, and illuminated:
When your perspective undergoes a shift,
windows through the darkness may appear.
A way out, a way forward
We are all going to look up
and see the dividing line
It is our choice
to be aware
to be open
to follow our dreams
A blue sliver of sky through full cloud cover with light exposure – Mark W
it comes again
always the same
every flower, every petal
fallen, how so
but never forgotten
captured and now recontextulizable.
Today I designed a moody cosmetics bag over at Zazzle. I’m not sure if anyone will ever buy the thing and make the design come into actual existence as a product, but even if that never happens it is still really cool to see my artsy photographs come to life on a random little bag. I’m looking forward to doing a whole bunch more of these babies so stay tuned!
The soft glowing ebbs flowingly
through the cold, dark night
rivers flow, the moon shines
light dances and fades knowingly
shapeshifting to our delight.

Here’s some glitchy mashups I made thanks to my buddy Phil Stearns’ online class. He showed us a few ways to break down different file types and use text editors, hex editors, audio software to create glitch effects on images and animated gifs. Here’s a mashup I did of some public domain nuke photos. Mmmm pretty colors… You likey? There’s more

I’ve included the originals that I used to create the mashups too, maybe you want to use them as well.
