“I think perfection is ugly.
Somewhere in the things humans make, I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion.”

Natural Impression"A Happening", by Julian Jones-Pittman.

A Happening is a performance, event or situation that is intended to be an art piece. The interaction between the action taking place and the viewers is part of the whole experience of the Happening.
A Happening that relates to Graphic Design may communicate a visual message where the viewers have the power and freedom to reinterpret it to their own meaning. To inform, persuade, organize, stimulate, locate, identify, attract attention and to provide visual pleasure.
Graphic designers are the link between the client and the audience. Essentially serving as translators. The typical nature of a designer is often described as pedantic, perfectionists, and very likely obsessive.
Our intent is to demonstrate to the audience what designers are capable of: taking the meticulous task of organizing materials of which are uncontrollable and organic. Forms emerged out of loose materials found on the grounds of the urban landscape. Excess plant materials are arranged into letters or shapes to create a design, word, or message of expression to passersby.

The most incredible is the fact that all these photos are not photoshopped. ‘The inspiration for my work comes from many years of traveling all over the world, every day life and from some of my favorite artists, such as René Magritte, M.C. Escher and Roger Dean. I carry my Mimiya RB-67 and several old Canon AE-1s wherever I go to shoot my photographs. The process of my montage starts with a concept. It is then followed by the exposure and selection of the negatives to be used. The design is then created by carefully choosing printing procedures such as combination printing; sandwiching negatives together thereby printing them simultaneously; pre-planned double exposures in the camera; the retouching of collaged photographs; and/or a combination of all the above.I sometimes retouch and/or airbrush the collages before re-photographing them.I then make a master negative to print a limited edition. I’m constantly asked about how I do them, I would like to think that the pictures can be appreciated without any real knowledge of their technical virtuosity.The visionary inspiration and imagination is not a technical skill learned in school but rather to my personal belief a gift from God.This is the only way I can explain the source of any idea I may have during the creation process.’
