We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers. 
Artist Tyler Spangler (who also once ran an illegal punk venue for 13 shows before the police shut it down) creates digital collages by blending his graphic designs with pieces of old photographs. Photomontage is typically done by hand—cutting and repasting to create the desired image—but Spangler has an equally difficult but different approach. Spangler uses pieces of old photographs, but the majority of his collages come from his own digitally rendered patterns texture and color.

Spangler’s work seeks to explore “the formalist relationship between images removed from their original context”, using the digital collage to look into the relationships between color, form, and photography. Though the accumulation of neon colors may be overwhelming for the eye to take in at once, his works vary in intensity; his collages can have anywhere from five to twenty different textures.
