This is a collage a put together a few years ago. I scanned a lot of different materials and then printed pictures of the scans. I cut out shapes based on the textures of the pieces I scanned and then built free form collages. Then I took pictures of the collages and printed those to build additional collages and add to the originals. I have been thinking of revisiting this project. I’d like to modify my technique by adding cutouts that would form shadows. I have been intrigued lately by 3D art that casts interesting shadows. The problem I have to solve is finding a sturdy mounting base for the shapes that I can easily cut. The outlines are often quite detailed so it needs to be a material that I can easily cut. Any suggestions?
