This is one of the pictures that I produced for the Night project. I wanted to emphasize the golden glow of the buildings on campus at night. While I orginally thought I was going to make more realistic photos, I decided to use a similar approach that I had used for the last project. I duplicated my image three times, rotated the duplicates, and then created a symmetrical, patterned picture. I then placed the image on a black background to emphasize the golden glow. This photo is more about pattern, light and color, and formal elements. While certain features of the building are recognizable (the orginal picture was of the library at night), the manipulation and combination of the images leaves the viewer confused and unsure of what he or she is looking at.
