Interview with Maria Tokar
by Abel Ibáñez G.
Which tools did you use for the creation of this piece?
I was just trying to express what I felt on that particular day. I found a suitable image and then experimented with different manipulations on it. At the end I came up with the title.
What were your references, influences or inspirations during your creative process?
It was a lot of images I found on Pinterest with photo manipulation and using a scanner in a creative process.
What did you enjoy the most about the process?
The stretching part, experimenting with different options was a really enjoyable process.
What was the hardest thing for you and how did you solve it?
Again, the stretching part was the hardest one at the same time because I had to choose the right part of the image for this manipulation.
