Redacting text lives high on my list of techniques for manipulating words, whether found or my own. I don’t remember the origins of the text for today’s collage. Here’s the new text.
difficult to feel deprived of what one never
This is not a trap
the source of strength is subtle
accept the realities
shut things out or to praise them
Where is your source of strength? How do you remain neutral to the realities of the day?
Take a piece of found text and redact it into something new. Layer that with other imagery and color, using a limited color palette. Three colors at most.
Everyday through December 25th, I’ll be making a 5×5 inch collage, writing a short entry on this blog and sharing a prompt for those who might want to participate along with me. You can follow my progress by subscribing to this blog through the sidebar on the blog homepage, or by following me on Instagram.
