This project should prove to be a real challenge, but you will love the finished product. I'm guessing that you've never created anything quite like this before. You will be creating a style of visual art that was conceived by the Israeli artist, Yaacov Agam. To learn about his life's work, watch this video below:
- Our finished working size for this will be 8" x 16" with 1" panels. That means that your drawings or images must fit an 8" x 8" area. You will end up with 16 panels that will hold both of your images.
- This can be done analog (totally hand-done in any media) and then glued to your folded sheet. This would allow you to work on a larger piece if you wish.
- To complete this in Photoshop you will need to know how to set up a grid, resize your image to 8x8, and how to make consistent 1" x 8" marquis selections.
- Be creative with this. Contrast two things and don't be afraid to take risks.
- We're going to be working at 150 ppi resolution for all of our images - we'll need to adjust our resolution for every image so that we're dealing with like measurement for all images.
Below is a sample image that I created in Photoshop several years ago:
