pictures are a selection of source material used to make the interfaces
from my CDROM !OINK. Some are PhotoShop layers that make up the final
image for each interface.
These images give a feel for the way in which I use a range of imagery
and source material that is very diverse. I then collaborate and integrate
it, so it will work harmoniously together. Sometimes my sources include
paper constructions, digital photographs, previous unrelated drawings,
collage, digital imaging and scanned objects.
Unused images often make their way to other projects or become source
material themselves, adding to my ever expanding resource collection.
This is the most vital aspect to my working process. I am an eager
collector and hoarder of imagery and objects that usually lend themselves
to use at a later date. I usually don"t have a specific purpose
in mind for this content. I collect these source materials with an
instinct for what will integrate well with other source materials
I have collected despite their apparent differences.
When I am making interactive work, this type of documentation sits
close to my computer. There are also screen grabs of other interfaces
still in progress. Having a range of the images at hand allows me
to get an idea of how the project is coming together as a whole and
I can make sure there is continuity with all screens.
Technically, I use Photoshop and Director, a scanner, digital camera
and a PC.
