When I scanned the paper dolls I made recently, I also did a few “candid” pictures. Meaning I stacked or arranged them on the scanner without knowing what the image would bring – since I was setting them in place upside down, from my viewpoint.
I like the idea of randomness in art and in life. Chance. Serendipity. The thought of finding a best friend in school solely because you were seated next to each other in second grade. The answer to a problem overhead in the words of a fellow commuter train passenger.
You know what I mean. These paper dolls allowed me to be random chance, in a small way. It was fun.
