Splinter in the Fog

Photographed by Dajiana Huang

One-and-a-half years ago, I visited Fujiko Nayaka's London Fog installation at the Tate Modern and took a photo of visitors in the fog. Over the past few months, I've been experimenting with different ways to alter the photograph through editing software in order to give the image a different meaning.




The original photograph.
(Image description: A group of people stand enshrouded in fog. In the middle, a girl with pink hair stands next to a man in a suit, both facing away from the camera.)

Altered Photograph #1
(Image description: The same photo as above, but distorted and colored with rainbow tints.)

Altered Photograph #2
(Image description: The photo has a purple-green-orange gradient, a black border, and is covered in highlighted text.)

Altered Photograph #3
(Image description: Pieces of the original photo, copied and pasted multiple times to create a pattern. The photo has the words "where is my mind?" pasted across in different corners.)

Altered Photograph #4
(Image description: The photo is black-and-white, with the words "things to see" repeated over the top in large red text.)

Altered Photograph #5
(Image description: The photo is completely white, save for the people, who are outlined in rainbow. They are also copied and pasted several times on top of each other. The words "ephemeral gateway" are on the top of the image in pink text.)

Altered Photograph #6
(Image description: The photo is overlayed with an image of the London sunrise; a hazy pink sky.)

Altered Photograph #7
(Image description: The photo has been copied and pasted in rows, and every other row is inverted in color.)
  
Altered Photograph #8
(Image description: The photo has an orange-red-purple gradient, and has 6 white boxes at the top.)
