I'm back to working on my Dig series. I'm pretty happy with this one I'm calling Oracle. It took me a bit to figure out what exactly should be emanating from the dead frog (thanks to Malena Bergmann for allowing me photographic access to her dead things collection). I had originally had an oil rig placed on the mountaintop, but this seemed far to obvious. Like all the images in this collection, the work will exist as a printed piece on cloth with a wax coating. It's already published as a 360 degree Flash-based panorama on my website.
What? Digging for oil isn't good for the environment?
So, I went with two frogs and smokey breath. As are the other pics in the series, the landscape comes from my poor attempts at charcoal drawing. Hooray for low-fi!
