    Boston… by Jackson Pollack?

    by
    For my first remix assignment this week, I was inspired by the “Remix an Album Cover” assignment I completed earlier this week. I decided to remix this assignment and became intrigued by the prompt to turn it into a Jackson Pollack painting. I then created the remix assignment, which can be found here: “Remix An Album Cover: Pollack Style.” I mentioned in the original version of this assignment I did this week that I wanted to create a remix of Boston’s debut album. Unfortunately when I was trying to remix it, I couldn’t think of anything. Boston already did a pretty good job at that, creating an album cover than has guitar-shaped spaceships in space. It’s one of my favorite album covers because some people I know didn’t even know this fact until I pointed it out! This was around the time I started looking at remixed projects and found the Jackson Pollock card. I thought, “That sounds cool!” and here we are! I have provided both the original remix and the Jackson Pollock version for reference. The remixed version I did has a blurred background, and I used the smudge tool in Pixlr to make the fire and planet look more abstract. I then used a particle tool in Pixlr to fragment pixels in the image to make it look like a bunch of paint splotches. I messed around with the color, tone, and difference a bit to ensure you could still figure out what it is supposed to be. To be honest, I used so many options in tools it’s kind of hard to explain. I mostly just pressed things, kept them if I liked them, and erased them if I didn’t. The final result turned out good, I think. It looks kind of like a stylized Jackson Pollack painting, and everyone I’ve shown it to seems to think so too! Please let me know what you think in a comment down below! Which version do you like the best?

    Auditory Hell [Remixed]: Pollack Style

    Please wear headphones with the volume at max for best effect (ABSOLUTELY DO NOT DO THIS) I like noise. I like making noise music. When the remix came about and asked that I “score” a Pollack painting, it made TOO MUCH sense. I really like how the end product came out, and I just thoroughly … Continue reading Auditory Hell [Remixed]: Pollack Style

    Photo Mash-Remixed Pollack Style – 6 Stars This assignment is one that I did awhile back where I had to take 2 people from different movies and make them look like they are in the same scene. Since we had to use one art piece that we had done earlier this semester and remix it, I chose this one because it was my favorite. The remix button told me to make it have the visual of Jackson Pollack art. At first...
