This triptych fuses industrial and architectural photos from various locations into an abstract mix of vector shapes and pixels. Each photograph was first Live Traced in Illustrator to break the image down into vector shapes. The resulting outlines were then brought back into an extremely low resolution Photoshop canvas where blend modes and colors were finessed to create the scenes. The final, high resolution images we upscaled from the low resolution composites without any interpolation in order to preserve the pixelation of the images.
Source photos were taken at the Getty Center in Santa Monica, CA, various stops along the NYC subway lines as well as other locations.
