Week 5 - Vanishing - rowandevoe & the melody censor
L: the melody censor
tmc: I was really excited to do a project with Merle, since doing tributes of some of her work earlier this year. We started discussing what formate etc to work in, but we never really came to any conclusions, Both of us often work in colour and square format, so it all worked out in the end.
As soon as I saw the theme vanishing, the idea of white face makeup and a white backdrop came to mind...something of a vanishing into nothingness. Her images are a statement, not about her vanishing, but the vanishing of the green environment. I'm so glad that I was able to make such a plain concept work with Merle's rich, colrful and textural botanical images.
