I had a lot of space on my wall and needed something fairly large to fill the void. as you can see I still have much space. My brother made me a house warming gift of a lamp made with velum paper and acetate of a painting by Souther Salazar.  If you have not seen his work you should check it out.  Google him. 
My brother needs to take pictures of this lamp and post it because it is way cool.  He also has made his own rasterbation and it turned out really neat.  I wanted to try it.  I digress.  So I found a picture by Souther that liked and he gave me the fed-ex/kinkos hook up and printed out all the pages.
I must add that I rent, and nailing 20 holes in the wall was not a good idea,plus if you nail through the picture, some of the picture is ruined, nor is taping it to the wall the classiest way... so I came up with my own solution... here it is!

Updated: here are mo better pictures

semi-tute:  (more about how to mount/hang your completed project without ruining your wall, less about how to rasterbate)

1.  choose a picture that you desire.

2.  go to the homakasu rasterbation website, it's easy to find, then rasterbate...print out the sheets of paper. (at home or school or Fed/ex!)

3.  get rubber cement, scissors, and black ( or any color you want) foam board.

4.  there will be borders around each square, cut it out if you wish, cut foam board the same size as each picture.

5. rubber cement your pictures to the foam boards.

6. get some skinny pieces of wood from menards, very skinny and flat, and paint them the same color as your wall so that you see more picture and less of what it's mounted to.

7.  cut the wood a little less than the width of the whole picture, my wood was so thin that i could break it with my hands. and I am so strong haha. 

8. space the boards evenly for the desired height of the picture,get a hammer and nail them to the wall, only 2 nails per wooden slat, *helpful hint: you can space your pictures out on the floor which will give you an idea of the measurement of the height.

9.  use adhesive mounting tape to mount your pictures to each wooden slat til you are done.  make sure you do one row at a time so you can measure the space in between each picture.  You can space it any way that you desire. I did a rulers width between each pic.

10.  You dont have to do this but I did, lay on the ground and stretch out your back, I also like to do the childs pose.  Then say out loud "geez that wasnt so hard, why did I procrastinate this project for so long?"  Then take a nap.

Fabulous rasterbation, and I really love how it looks on that bright wall.  I hope you submitted it to the gallery at the Homakasu site, too; it's a beautiful example of how good these can look.

This is awesome. How did I not know that rasterbation existed! What is wroing with me?

I like the image you chose, it goes really well with that vibrant wall color. Did you paint it that color or did the space come like that? I think yellow walls would sell me on a place by itself.

I love it, when I get my apartment I will definately come back to this semitute.
Great picture choice, btw!

Great rasterbation!
By the way, the webpage is www.homokaasu.org - "homokaasu" (meaning "gay/homosexual gas" in Finnish (yeah, WTF)) not "homakasu" Smiley

Thanks for all the compliments, comments and stuff.  I suck at explaining computery things and would love to be helpful on how to rasterize but I got help from someone who already knew how to rasterize.  My only suggestion is to play around and experiment a few times first, make a picture for someone else and then once you've got it down you can make your own the way you want it. 

The color on my walls I think is  called buttercup.

Thanks for the explanation of homokaasu, that is weird.

Wow!  I just love that!  It's perfect on your wall and I love your background color. 

My walls are white and we're fixin' to repaint them bright white, as my husband is horrified by a wall any other color.  Sad  I would love, love, love to paint one or more of them robins egg or even a deeper aqua color.  Sigh...  Anyhow, I'm thinking it would look really cool to paint the wall just behind the rasterbation in a different color coordinating to your rasterbation, kwim?  Like I'm thinking you could do it so the background is the same shape, but just a bit bigger so it will frame your picture, or you could do a more funky messy edge.  I like it so much better with a color other than white behind.  If you did this you could just do it at the same time as your wood pieces.

I think I may have to do this!

wanted to say thanks for the great mounting/hanging idea for rasterbation!!  I've been keeping a rasterbation project on the back burner for years b/c i couldnt figure out a way to hang them other than tape that would be cheap, simple, and not too much wall damage.  So thanks so much, I'm inspired all over again!  ~ beth
