Day 29 Munich Artists Self Portrait Challenge – Museum spiel – Lets Play with Museum Signs

For Today’s challenge I went downtown and grabbed a cup of coffee and then started walking to different museums to snap photos of their signs and myself in front of the buildings.   I got bored of doing this after the 3rd museum so decided that was enough for the challenge.

The following are the photos that I snapped edited and collaged on my iphone 6 plus.

I’m so happy that I can wear a jacket! This is the expression I’m giving you. I took six shots with six different expressions and decided to use this smile/smirk. I do this alot so it seemed very me.
See my hair has a mind of its own.

In the next two shots, I played with the cropped museum sign word and my image in front of the Residenz. I layered the word museum so it would fit into a square. Initially I was going to make museum fill the square but then I decided to have it over my eyes.  In the photo where you can’t see my eyes, the photo represents artists being blinded by art/museums. In the second, I’m the museum filled with curated ideas and memories.

I will work on this piece a bit more and erase my eyes. I find this version a bit creepy but interesting. Photo collage by Emmy Horstkamp Blinded by Museum August 2015 Iphone 6 plus

This image will be worked on a bit more with photoshop. I will then probably use it for an encaustic art piece using an image transfer technique. I like how that looks on the wax. “I am Museum” by Emmy Horstkamp photo collage iphone 6 plus August 2015
