My first REAL New Media assignment dealt with pairing text with an image. The text is taken from Kaya's "Rose Jail" and the concept is dealing with me as a human doll. I wanted to create something beautiful and also slightly melancholy. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with it. (I HIGHLY suggest you full view)
This image was at least 20 hours of hard work.. I painted/overlayed doll ball-joints over my skin, airbrushed everything and manipulated color, etc. My darling friend Tiff shot all the photos in this shoot, lending me her apartment and her time for which I am exceedingly grateful.
The original image is hideous and embarrassing, but it really shows how far I came from the original photo.
My next New Media project revolves around a Little Red Riding Hood theme! I'm simultaneously looking forward to and dreading it.
