Kaleidoskope - Cyber Series

A series of kaleidoskopic images. These with a focus on cyberpunk/ futuristic images.

I've been playing around with Photoshop, trying to find ways to create those reflecting, kaleidoskopic images without manually resizing and rotating images. This was eventually achieved by using embedded images - there is an origin file, one that is cropped to a triangle, one that reflects the first triangle and the final image, which combines the triangles in a hexagon. Voilá, now I only needed to swap the origin image and the final file would update. This enabled me to play around with many different source images. In a second step, I combined two images with different scales and even added some transparency.

This is the "Cyber" series.

Mainly constructed from street images of various Asian megacities, expect for Cyber IV, which is sourced from a neon art project. All those awesome neon blue, neon pinks, neon reds created an awesome depths for the images. A little bit of layering and masking did the rest, almost feels like you could fall into these!
