Awesome tumblr blog for fans of great imagery, check out all the older posts as there is surely something to inspire everyone or at least make you smile!

Here’s a selection of Andermatts BA Graduation Project.

It shows how meanings and effects of images can be modified, affected and changed by using this tool. Two different working methods, systematic analysis and experimental handling, stand in the focus.’

5 permanent markers
3 baths and 2 showers to clean off
