To create these images, I use a combination techniques.

First I collage scraps of paper from tabloid magazines, junk mail, and other found printed ephemera by pressing clear packing tape to the pages and lifting the ink off the paper on to the adhesive.

Then I scan, enlarge, catalog and often digitally manipulate these small semi-transparent pictures. Frequently I combine these images with photos I’ve taken or found. Sometimes I add in a layer of drawing which could be a scanned pen or pencil piece or could be a drawing I create with a computer.

On occasion I print out the image, alter it in the physical world and re-scan it for further editing. I often refer to the collages in this ongoing series as having a variable output medium and size, since the completed master image is usually digital and can be realized in a number of formats. I have translated images from this series into paintings, drawings, prints, and an iPhone app.

What keeps me interested is the constant interplay between the look/feel/message of the materials and the content, characters, and nebulous narrative that emerges out of combining them. -Elisha Sarti, 2018
