Bliss Ng -aka Kaz in the virtual world- is a Year 2 Interactive Media student at Nanyang Technological University School of Art, Design & Media. She is a self-taught artist who dabbles in digital manipulation, with Photoshop as her main tool. Bliss recently started to animate her manipulations, creating a fusion of digital manips and video in the form of an animated GIF, entirely done in Photoshop.
“I’ve always liked the idea of a collage; taking pieces and putting them together to form a cohesive whole. This is probably why I got into photo manipulation in the first place; it was something that intrigued me, and I went for it. I started with collage-type photo manipulations, then incorporated certain concepts into my work, and went on from there. And then I wanted to take it just a little further, so I began tinkering with the animation window in Photoshop. The experimenting just never stops, and it’s glorious.”
