United State of Art

United State of Art - an image of the US Flag I created blending superimposed images of flags (including actual photographs, paintings by great artists, and pop icons all blended together to make the source flag). Then this mosaic, or photomosaic, was created using 3000 Digital artworks from my Flickr friends and members of the Visual Mashups group. Most of the tile images are beautiful blends, mosaics, photomosaics, collages, fractals, and even quilts!

 

To celebrate the Fourth of July and the addition of the 3000th artwork to the Visual Mashups pool of composite, blended, and mosaic art.

Named after DJ Earworm's pop music mashup United State of Pop:

(Seriously, do yourself a favor and take the 4 minutes it takes to watch the video and hear this mashup. In 4 minutes you'll learn more about pop music in 2008 than you'd probably ever need to know!)

 

(If you do, please write to me and tell me your thoughts. Thanks!)

 

In celebration of 3 months of Visual Mashups, 300 members, and 3000 images. This image contains the first 3025 images in the Visual Mashups pool, exactly. Congratulations for being such a great group!

 

Be sure to check out the large size of this fotomosaic (or photo-mosaic):

Cheers,
