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 "Japan" series.
It started with Japan I, a reflection of a walk from "Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine outside Kyoto, Japan." Now, I haven't been there, but putting this pathway with the gates in the prisma made for a really cool effect. More to come - I wanna focus more on nature here instead of the megacity vibe that is present in the Cyber series.
