I am very excited to be part of the Love Apple Exhibit, which opens tonight at the 33Contemporary Gallery, located in the Zhou B Art Center at 1029 W 35th Street in Chicago.
Fellow College of DuPage (COD) student Christine Carroll and I were featured in The College of DuPage Photo Program Blog, Silicon & Silver, which also included our images.
The exhibit, which runs through March 10, celebrates the innovation of Apple, Inc. and its late leader Steve Jobs. All of the art for this exhibit was created or manipulated using Apple hardware or software.
Color Series 2: Abstract #1 and Abstract #2.
These two images are the result of a simple photographic experiment with oil and water in a shallow, textured serving tray. The camera was angled down towards and through the tray to a multi-colored background, focusing on the oil globules and textured shapes of the tray and blurring out the background colors.
Lighting was directed onto the background below the tray to give a back-lit effect.
Here is my setup. The blue and yellow image on the floor, tray propped on soda cartons, which provided the red/green in the first image.
