i like the graphic style and the colour simplicity and the use of the paper colour

i especially like the cut and paste quality

i like the way that pictures become very texturized as the breakdown of quality increases and subjects  become ambiguous

i am also slightly obsessed with carpets at the moment and i am going to combine these themes

in this the carpet image is broken down and my plan is to bring it back with similar techniques to imply a different subject
