I've been playing with the idea of mosaic, mirrored images and construction.
The idea is to show some kind of "humanized mirrored" image. The whole is constructed of original cyanos, printed one by one and glued to a foam board substract, with its hue shifts and differences inherent to the process. And despite this "claiming" a caleidoscoped image very different from the parts its formed. Its my intention to praise the human in this images, not to praise the err or imprecision.
The mosaics are more or less four feet wide.

Those are amazing!
I love them both but especially the first one made from the reversed and upside down versions of the burro photo.
And absolutely the "human" adds to why it is great, and it would be something less if made with mechanical precision.

Wonderful images, Ricardo. I did some work similar to that about ten years ago, but it wasn't as well done. These are great!
