Abstract Potential

Looking at the extremes of graphic manipulation. Without adding to or editing the picture with my own gestures, normal pictures are turned into completely abstract pieces. I simplified them as much as the software would allow, and by doing so created a piece of work which was coded in its entirety into the picture, but was hidden. The fact that the simplification process relies on the information already present in the photo means that in a way, each photo comes with it’s own sister photo, it’s own “Abstract Potential”. It’s only visible once the rest of the information is removed. Pretty fun to play around with!
