Let's scamper some art
The challenge this week is to apply one of the ideation techniques we discussed to an existing artefact so as to remediate it into another artefact.
I’m a big fan of rolling the die on the creation process, so I’ll be using this random image from randomdailyart.com:
Bomen in de omgeving van Subiaco (trees in the Subiaco area) (1777–1847), Joseph August Knip
The remediation will be with the help of randomised SCAMPER using a tool I made.
Here are the modifications I stumbled upon:
Guiding question: What can I change in this way or that way so as to achieve such and such a result?
I had some freedom here to modify the picture in any way, so I made alternating negative strips.
Rearrange (Or Reverse)
What can I rearrange in some way – can I interchange components, the pattern, or the layout?
I then rearranged the strips.
Guiding question: What can I remove without altering its function?
I removed every other line to get a scanline effect.
There you have it. It might be interesting to script this process to randomise a whole bunch of these.
I wrote a follow-up to this post.
