Familiar Images, Unfamiliar Presentation
The image above is every Playboy centerfold from the 1990's layered on top of one another. Jason Salavon is a digital artist who writes his own software code that creates new images out of many many other images. I think his work is relevant to our class in that it allows us to see how one can take an existing image or idea and make it unique while still seeming familiar. Below is an image titeld "374 Farben" which contains of every page of the 2006 IKEA catalog reduced to a single color. As designers we are always looking for ways to represent images and information, Salavon's work is a great example of how one can do so in an interesting and innovative way.
