It’s been a busy week at Geezer towers, with the heatwave taking it’s toll on our little girl, who just hasn’t been able to get a decent night’s sleep for days, so our output has dropped to almost nothing for a week.
This piece was started on Tuesday, and only now sees the light of day.
This is my second attempt at addressing the idea of cutting a card to create a new one, then splicing it together with it’s twin and the beginning of a short series in which I investigate how far this can go.
This first cut just takes the card, from Barrow in Furness and pulls out the most obvious feature, the foremost boat. I put this in the opposite card and merged it, then took the resulting card and sliced it in half again and re-spliced it with the original.
I like how it makes you double take and re-evaluate which parts are the original and which are flat watercolour
More to come shortly.

I’ve always been rather intrigued by the name Barrow-in-Furness. But now there are two places Barrow-in and Furness. Hard to see where the splicing is! A pleasing scene – in spite of sleep-deprivation.
yes I was in two minds about whether to include the writing as part of the image and decided that Barrow-in and Furness it had to be. takes long enough to make one without having to worry abut matching writing up!
Fair enough – makes you notice the name more actually.
