Collage Magic by Emma Anna
by Emma Anna
Part autobiography, part fantasy, Emma Anna´s vision of The New Old World (aka The NOW) fuses vintage ephemera with modern imaging technologies. Emma shapes this strange world by using the pen tool from Adobe Photoshop as her magic wand, in the process declaring herself to be a "collage magician".
Via an illustrated essay Emma outlines the role of magic in her collage and public artwork of the past decade including an introduction to the sigil making technique of chaos magic. These ideas, combined with current movements and the traditions of analog and digital collage, are proposed as the powerful and potent seeds for a future collage magic manifesto, and a social revolution.
