In todays visual arts, technology has impacted Collage Makers in such a way that "to glue" requires "no glue". As an 'Old School Elmer's Glue-Meister", it's intriguing to envision collaging without some form of glue....even for a Fiber Collage Maker. Yes, I use glue...it's called Fabric Glue and comes in a Spray Can and a Squeeze Bottle.
Perfect...I work with software...I'm all over this!Then the App'ers go on to say, "Applications for desktop or laptop computers are sometimes called desktop applications...yada yada mobile devices yada yada. When you open an application, it runs inside the operating system until you close it."
Yippee, more I got this!!!
*My operating system sewing machine is computerized, has a desk type top and it's mobile.
There's more! The APP Collage'ers go on to give very specific 'APP's' for creating a collage. Again, I couldn't be happier to be ahead of the Technology Collage Game. First, there's the Picasa APP...really, I studied all about Piccaso in college Art History, and can even name most of his famous collage looking paintings...back then it was called Cubism.
This one caught my attention...PicMonkey! Now, how in the world does that relate to my method of picking from the stacks of fabric or picking from drawers, boxes, and bags for trim, buttons, dodads and so on. I'm no monkey...or am I? I studied 'Evolution' in
collage college, too.
Now, here's an APP I can totally related to, and use as a Computer Collage Technologist.
As soon as I finish up here with posting these Photo Collages of my new line of
Fiber Art 'Collage Bags'...
...I need to get back to that 'Simply put APP'*
