I have been combining images. I experimented with placing multiples on the scanner bed. But, ultimately decided that the ephemeral effect from scanning separately is what I want.
This one is a bit more dynamic. The more objects that I have scanned the more diverse my palette becomes.
I ended up cropping this and making it more transparent. I want it to look as though it is disappearing. Also, I keep thinking of the funerary aspect of "the transience of life" in the Vanitas paintings.
This is a side by side with one of the larger pieces that I made 2 semesters ago.
The scans have definitely grown out of that body of work.
