Interview to Computer Arts Magazine

The designs had to communicate themes of speed and calmness, to represent the Heathrow Express travelling experience, explains graphic designer, Matt. I scanned in hundreds of photos and extracted abstract symbols of these themes, then dropped them into imaginary landscapes. I made 64 designs, each one projected 50 feet in size to ambient sound. I like to digitally pull photographic images apart and then create something new from their pieces, he adds.This can involve many techniques, such as splitting up colour channels to totally re-mapping pixel values, using the various image adjust tools. I'm now working on abstract designs where I start by removing all the out-of-gamut colours of an image.
