After seeing the film “Inception” this summer, I was intrigued with the idea of becoming “the architect of your own dream”, a theme in the film. In response to that, I set out to create my own ’dreamscape", building it from 10 of my own photographs, including a photograph I took of a figure [angel?] from a Madonna painted by one of my favorite artists, Piero della Francesca. I added texture from Flypapers.

And speaking of photo composites, look at the work of Hotshots. She has used 23 of her own photographs!

    This is fascinating Dawne! I have yet to see the film but I have been told it’s fabulous!!

  • Thanks Dar. Yes, it’s a great film, but one you really need to see twice to fully understand. I’ll get it on Netflix in a few months and take it slow and take notes!!!!
