the other side

other side window 2s

Is the other side
in or out?  The illusion
solidifies air.

For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.  I did a number of monoprints based on the photo, and picked this one, on a paper bag, to stitch and tear.

Then I photographed it taped on two different window, and with a bunch of different visions behind the torn part.  These are just some of the explorations…

The light shining through the paper really added a golden glow.

And the light changes the colors; these were all taken at different times and in at least slightly different places.

The eyes and the camera both play with the air and light.

    Stitched and very entwined, perplexing. I love the view ~ inside looking out and outside looking in.

    This is so cool. I somehow missed it in my billions of emails. In or out–illusions!
