Anywhere but here

This postcard-inspired piece is an image I composed in Photoshop made entirely of scanned objects and the paint tool. The assignment was to create an image based on a desire. My topic was the desire to be "anywhere but here." I aimed to portray this not only in a physical capacity, as in location, but also in a mental capacity. I created this image to resemble a vintage post card - reflecting on my desire to be back in my childhood, as well as my desire to go to new places and travel. The desire to be anywhere but here can also have a dream like aspect. Escaping reality is also a theme in this image.

This image was made entirely of these scanned objects, and only these scanned objects.
