What's her face

Google eye Barbie 1-21-13

This face is actually a Barbie. A Batgirl Barbie, to be precise, sans bat-mask. I photographed her wearing a pair of plastic jiggle eyes, and then just kept manipulating the images and experimenting with effects until eventually I got these. Days like this are often practice sessions that yield something else further down the line. Taking time to free-form without a specific agenda or end product in mind is very satisfying, creatively. No rules. No lines. No voices allowed telling me what's wrong or right. Just the dizzy freedom of riding the wave as long as it lasts.
