Deconstruction (part 6)

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 4 August 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

A short series of abstracts mainly put together using Pixel Bender for 64 bit Photoshop CS5.

A few moths ago the Bizz Bar on Ocean Road in South Shields suddenly collapsed showering the street with tons of debris. The building had been undergoing some "refurbishment" at the time of the collapse and little is known about the true reason why its structure spectacularly failed. I documented the aftermath the following day as contractors started to clear away the mess, the pictures themselves were not earth shattering but they gave me the basis for these artistic abstracts.

Here's the original that I made this from.

PENTAX K100D 1/350 second F/8.0 ISO 200 30 mm (35mm equiv.)

Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.

Going from the original(It took my ages to work out what the initial element was that was the main "Input" to this must be a real mathematical journey(For the software, that is). Put more simply-I wonder how it got here...from there!

L'angevine from Angers, France

une inspiration abstraite qui me fait penser à une tour d'escalier....où on se retrouve dans un cercle enfermer,comme dans un monde imaginaire mais qui n'est pas le monde qu'on souhaite voir....un monde où on ne peut plus s'exprimer et ni marcher....
