Lately the Tight Ship brain trust has been attracted to unintentional or unconventional digital art: imagery created by accident, by artificial intelligence, or by using digital tools in ways they weren’t designed to be used. To that latter point, I created “Homeworlds,” a series of quickie satellite-like insta-maps using only smartphone imaging apps like Camera Roll, PS Express, and Instagram.

I transformed tile, linoleum, cement, and other ordinary household surfaces into sky-high overviews of planets not unlike our own. Every day in April 2019 I posted faux-coastlines, forests, deserts, glaciers, and more to the #homeworlds_2019 tag on Instagram. The series ended today, and you can see it all at this link.
