Artist's Statement

Blens is the thesis project of Alex Jacque for the Master of Fine Art in Graphic Design graduate degree at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Blens is an iOS app that connects friends and strangers from around the world through the digital equivalent of a film swap. The act of blending photos allows us to discover intersections and juxtapositions across moments in our lives. The app experience removes a level of control from users by hiding their photos from each other until the collaboration is complete. Blens thus creates a sense of surprise in the act of superimposing unexpected images. This book serves as the physical documentation of the thesis project. The book contains and introduction to the outcome of the project, an essay describing the process, best practices discovered along the way, and documentation of the thesis exhibition of Blens.
