ISLAND: FLOWERBED2006 Kate Atkin (1981 − )
About Island; Flowerbed (2006), Atkin says, "I had this idea of mixing two different images together to make a third, which would express something between the two. I tried to do this by splicing negatives of a flowerbed together, but photographs give you such a specific answer to a question. I had wanted to create the impression of an island, but the photograph I was using was clearly of a flowerbed. So I experimented by drawing the vague outline of an island and a flowerbed, and the result was neither one nor the other."
