So this is another project I've been working on and keeping under wraps (ha...this will make sense very soon) for a little while now. Around the same time I got the invite for the Occult Art Show at the end of June, I was made aware that there would be another show in July with a Sci-Fi theme.
After chatting with Artetak for a bit, and realizing that there aren't many photographic entries submitting to her shows, I, of course, made the decision to make something happen.
I went through a couple of different ideas and concepts (I mean, when DON'T I think of seven different outcomes to the same problem?) and eventually settled on one playing with the idea of how "Technology" is really doing more to harm us than help.
So I put out a casting call to some of my friends, and ended up getting an almost immediate yes from the great Kali Fornication.
The pieces we ended up shooting required a lot more post production than I usually put into my pieces, but I think the end result was still pretty neat.
Straight out of camera, we ended up with a series of images like these:
And after a few hours in the editing phase (and many test prints to make sure things read just the way I wanted them too) we ended up with the following:
The last of which will be displayed in print (and be available for purchase) at Battle & Brew in Atlanta from Tonight - July 24th through the end of August (or so).
For those reading this blog post in the Atlanta area, be sure to drop by for the opening night!
