676th Show & Tell Competition: Unity of Opposites

Post Sun Jul 16, 2023 2:12 pm


The last competition was about commonality between themes. This week's theme explores combining differences into a whole - mashup. A definition for mashup is: 1. (Pop Music) a piece of recorded or live music in which a producer or DJ blends together two or more tracks, often of contrasting genres. The idea here is to combine images that express differences into a unity of opposites.

The synthesis can express harmony, humor, surprise that arises only through the combination.

Can be a digital combination in a single image. Or two (or more) ideas presented in a single image. Maybe two ideas combined through the use of reflections. Or two or three images that work together to mesh the differences. An image projected onto a person. Can be subtle or overt. Can be based on color differences, structural differences, conceptual differences. Open to interpretation! Examples:

Avalokiteshvara


From many, one


Cleopatra


Vieux Paris


Tune In Turn On


It's full of stars


Touch


A Sinking Realization


Untitled

An interesting and challenging topic, I do not have collage-style images in my collections, however, I'd like to submit three photos taken at the VyŇ°ehrad Cemetery in Prague.

Some graves there have statutes that seem to be totally out of place, they are not mournful, they celebrate the person buried there in a joyful, lively way, in this sense, they unite the opposites, life and death.
