Done as part of for my 116 class "Generations" Project. For my project, I'm doing 3 of the the different houses I've lived in. My middle house used to have a pool, and I wanted to represent that feeling I got when floating underwater, like it was a different world.
Found inspiration in the photography of Elena Kalis (specifically, the photo 4 rows from the bottom of the girl with the red ribbon).
It's interesting how rotating the image gives a different feel. When viewed "properly" so that the surface is up, she looks like she's drowning (not what I was going for). With the surface on the bottom, it's like she's falling into a portal (which I liked, but wasn't quite right either). The surface to the side feels more like it's her choice whether to go through or not.
