Appropriation Exercise

This is a digital collage I made for appropriation exercise. I layered different fragmented images that I appropriated from news website such as New York Times. I changed the scales and applied different filters such as blurring effect or changing the colors. The collage gives a sense of war even though there are not all related to war because of the missiles and foggy images. This collage was inspired by Andy Warhol’s disaster series. I recontextualized the images by juxtaposing them messily. Because the images are so blurry and pixelized, the collage numbs and etherizes the tragic things happening around the world.
