This collage, created by layering hand-cut photographs of different shades of blue and red from printed photographs, sets up an intriguing optical illusion. Pieces are laid out atop one another, with vintage black and white images in the background giving a sense of depth, almost appearing to pull us into a vortex at center. As a collage, it’s neither completely flat nor fully three-dimensional, though the juxtapositions of color and shape create the illusion of space.
