Collage: Dialogue

digital collage by Susanna King
I've been in an artistic slump for a while now. For a long time, I didn't feel like creating anything. More recently, I've been inspired to create but felt awkward and out of practice. I wasn't sure how to start again.

These digital collages inspired by a single word have been my go-to creative exercise for years. Even though I couldn't think of a good word myself, I remembered that an email newsletter I get from the Society of St. John the Evangelist includes a daily word for meditation.

Art is a form of meditation for me, so today I meditated on the word "Dialogue." I used my tried and true formula: searching for Creative Commons-licensed images on Flickr using this word, and selecting the ones that spoke to me. The photos included in this collage were taken by Katie Taylor, Olga, and Scott Schiller.
