Yesterday, I posted a haiku about animals drowning and cruel humans who could just stand by and watch, allowing life to slip away.
I took a photograph of something I made, then tweaked it into photo art by applying themes, change the coloring, etc.
This is the original photo but you can only see animals in there when the saturation changed. Click on each picture to enlarge them.
Here you just see the peanut butter jar from above. I used a knife to scrap everything down. Then I poked a hole and twirled the knife until I have a whirlpool. I pulled the knife out fast to get those edges.
At first I thought I had created an eye and wanted to write a haiku about an eye. Why a haiku? Blame Ronovan. He has gotten me addicted.
But when I looked more closely into the jar I started to see animals. I took a picture, uploaded it to my computer, and started experimenting. I made changes to the image, the colors, made lines more pronounced et voilà!
If you look closely into the pink washed image you can see animal heads and necks swirling down, being pulled into the whirlpool.
By applying the Andy Warhol method the accented edges started to form a man’s haircut with a vaguely shaped face. The faceless men represent so many who stand by and watch a disaster unfold before their eyes. Not acting, just watching.
The last image is more obvious. It is a cold dark eye without a soul or a reflection.
Thanks to all who tried to guess what the original image was!
