Set to zoom

Lauren Wilson

This series of images (of which there are more) were created whilst I was scanning in a postcard. The photocopier was unknowingly set to zoom x400, which produced these interesting images. The photocopier also chose which section of the image to select and enlarge, as well as its orientation.
The images start off recognisable, yet pixelated due to printing techniques at the time. I found the results interesting and continued scanning the print outs of the previous. Through this experimental process they become more and more distorted and abstract. I really like how far I have taken this, relatively old, found object and the chances of modern technology have played their part.
