Often times great art can come about by accident. For instance, I was driving along and wanted to capture the sky at twilight, but with my limited knowledge of camera apertures and the use of one unsteady hand to take the photo while driving resulted in… accidental art.
How many of you have taken a photo at night and didn’t have the camera on the correct setting, or couldn’t keep your hand steady? Your photo probably looked a lot like this image below.
A photo out of focus can be a beautiful accident. The energetic motion of the streaks of light will command attention in any urban living room design. For a visually powerful piece, dramatically enlarge the photo to cover an entire wall.
To accomplish the enlargement , transfer the image onto painter’s canvas for a more textured and abstract effect. Not only does this provide a more artististic feel, it allows some wiggle room for loss of image resolution from the enlargement. Split the image up onto multiple canvases, allowing for an interesting geometric configuration and ease of installation. Wrap canvases over 2″ deep frames for visual weight and then hang.
You now have a unique piece of photo art to decorate your home interior created by you! So go out and make a mistake, and create art from your own happy accident!
