A More Subtle Brilliance of Execution

Virtual Morphologies - the dark surreal stylings of J. Karl Bogartte. "In 1973 I accidentally discovered that by moving things around on the ordinary copy machine (and in effect, subverting its intended purposeā€¦), strange conjunctions revealed themselves. At the beginning of 2000, I just as suddenly abandoned this process and leaped into the 21st century, exploring the computer and the realms of digital surrealité."

Great post! I've had similar fun with a scanner, but of course, didn't take it as far or with as excellent a result as Bogartte did. I find it pretty inspiring. Too bad the images are so small.

The images: pretty rad!

The theory: leaden and tedious. I'm not sure I like reading self-scholarship like this.

Still cool, though.
