For my project I chose to take a very bland space and alter the way it was presented to make it into art. I did this by taking around 90 pictures of my apartment. I stood in the same place, slowing panning up and down, side to side, to make sure I had 180 degrees of my apartment represented in the photographs. I then opened these photos in photoshop and arranged them to create a panorama of my apartment. It was impossible, however, to get a completely exact representation. (Like what one would have gotten had they used a panoramic camera.) There are many areas that are represented multiple times in the image. The viewer is confused, but the space also has a strange way of making sense.
