Vaka Valo’s Dream Diary 2

Vaka Valo, Dream Diary No. 56, 2016

Vaka Valo got in touch recently with some fabulous additions to the “Dream Diary” series. I featured early works from this ongoing series in 2012.

This time, I asked Vaka about the series: “All of my works involve chance, contextual change, and strict limitations. For this project, the pieces begin as tiny collages from old instructional manuals I have meticulously mined. After sorting through thousands of images, I scan the hundreds of individual components, then create the collages digitally, revamping the colors completely, then have the compositions digitally printed and stretched onto canvas VERY large (adding a few more touch-ups by hand), as the dot gain patterns in the colors are clearly discernible upon viewing. There is only a single tangible canvas for each composition.”
