Awhile ago I inadvertently turned on Photoshop’s preference for placing a grid over every new file. Some areas had a tighter mesh than others. So I started taking screen shots of images with their two-scale grids.
There’s something soothing about the reliably straight lines reacting to the image, the details soliciting the finer mesh. I collected a small bunch and they clearly needed more made of them. Here are four examples.
Third artwork has an overlay of a photo by yolky and at least two other photographers on unsplash. I figure once I’ve changed someone’s photo enough that I can’t ID it then ethics and goodwill have been served.
