Think: David Hockney, Jeremy Wolff, Masumi Hayashi... We’ll also experiment with creating these types of joiner collages with video in Adobe After Effects. We will even explore making photo collage sculptures with digital prints and putting them together with glue and tape. We’ll look at photo sculpture artists like Osang Gwon and Oliver Herring.
