Project: Surrealism

Fall Semester (Digital Art) 2017 This project was to design a piece of surrealist art using stock photos that are restricted in sizes through Adobe Photoshop. Masking was a major tool used in this project. The concept of this piece was Memento Mori, about vanities. However, it is a reversed version of it. The living lives and dies after a certain time no matter what, but in this case the dead is reversed and hope for living is restored. The tree is dying, but it still holds upright. The ghostly hands stretch out to fill the handless clock, a candle is still lit to depict hopefulness, decayed roses slowly blossom again, the world is reversed and upside down. Time is reversed.
