How “Low” Can You Go?

I wanted to explore the different degrees of creating an art work. i am a very hands on person who likes to create physicals works like paintings or sculptures. After being being more comfortable with Photoshop and learning how to code, I thought it was a great opportunity to branch out and use digital tools as my materials. But the idea of how much of thought and action an artist can put in to an artwork and still call it theirs’ interested me so I decided to combine both my physical and digital materials to explore it. Can I still say that it is my work even if I did not make half of the decisions that was put in to the final product? CanI still say that it is my work when every single elements on the final image was not created by me? These were the questions I asked myself and wanted to explore while I was proceeding this project.
