Abstracting the Master: A Tribute to Alexander Calder

Composited in PhotoshopComposited in Photoshop

I abstracted the challenge to try something I had always wanted to do: create a photo mosaic. So this photo was made in my mind.
When I was about 8 years old my parents to me to an Alexander Calder show at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. That visit was a formative part of my understadning of art. Why? Because in the midst of his flowing, abstract, works, was real craftmanship and skill. The welding and balance of his big pices and the intricate details of his wire sculptures all impressed me with the need to express art through skill.  I stood, as an 8 year old, in front a large Picasso abstract and thought, "I could that. It's just so much splashed paint." But with the Calder works I realized I would have to maste a number of skills to begin to reproduce his work.

So here is an image of Mr. Calder abstracted with 1200 images from the the last few weeks of 52 Frames.

You can see the original photo of Calder, my colorized version, and also download a super large version of the mosaic.

Assignment:  There is something that everyone dislikes whether it is doing the laundry for the 30 millionth time, the sound of a baby crying, inconsiderate smokers or the daily commute. We are pretty sure that you will not have to think for very long to think of something! This is however an ideal challenge to tell a story with your photo. Are any senses shown in the photo? Why do the viewers realize that your photo show something that you dislike? Maybe it is something universal that we all dislike or maybe they can see the reason in your photo.
