Modern Art- At Least That Is What I Call It

My dear friend Trish, master of photography, and I once again used my classroom's overhead projector to create images. She was much more successful (check out her blog). Below is an engraved tribute to 9/11. The engraving is etched into glass. With the light coming from the projector it gives the etching an extra glow. I then fragmented the image to symbolize how the country has been politically divided ever since the tragic events on 9/11.

The image below is what I titled "Desperation". Enough said.

How'd you do that second one? I really like it. Glad the overhead produced some ideas for you guys!

These came out great, Steve...I love them both! Great filter you applied to the first image...and your writing made it more meaningful. Well done!

Nice images--the first is very effective because of the subject matter and how you handled it.
