Today we spent time on getting to grips with Digital Imaging, using a software package called Adobe Photoshop. What it (no, we) does is changing the look and feel of images; either photo's, drawings, or paintings.
Before the end of this two week course we have to complete 3 to 6 images that form a sequence, compiled from our own photo's, drawings, or paintings.
To my luck, I had taken loads of pictures of items in mass, or repeating patterns, when I spent time with Angelo Blokzijl in Malaga last year. These images I will use for this project.
Since my piece of work will be about 'repetition' I would like to have them in a range, from left to right, hopefully spanning over a meter in width. Also, I noticed that if one searches for items on the Internet, with the use of search engine Google, the number of pages of hits is visualized by repeating the 'oo' s of Google.
Say I have 16 pages of hits, Google at the bottom of the page changes to Goooooooooooooooogle!
By the way, here is a nice feature to personalize the Google page to YOUR name:
Type any text into the text box below and push the "Make" button.

Enfin, instead of using Google as a name, whilst using their font, I will write Gurgle instead.
Why? Because it is a verb that deals with repetition and it is therefore more suitable for my project.
To gurgle = To flow in a broken irregular current with a bubbling sound: water gurgling from a bottle.
A preview of the Gurgle piece is shown next:
Gurgle, where each 'u' will be replaced by a composition of my Malaga pictures.
For example, I have these pictures taken in Malaga transformed to 'u' shape.
In addition, I played around with repetition patterns of these two pictures:
