Background for main project
This is the image I finally used in the background of my project. There is one image where Im laughing and in contrast the image where my picture is torn up and sewn back together. There is a contrast between the happy and laughing picture of me with the torn up, sewn and graphic picture or me.
The text I have used is a small section from a 'ghazal'(a song focusing mostly on powerful lyrics and good classical singing). The ghazal speaks of a lost childhood and how the person would give up all his money and popularity in return for his simple and innocent childhood where he played with paper boats, danced at weddings and played with his grandparents. Its an extremely touching song with very meaningful lyrics which certainly strikes a chord with whoever hears it. I manipulated the text in photoshop using different filters to give the text a faint, ghostly sort of feel.
This image will be backlit using whitish blue lights. Overall the feeling given by the image would make the viewer feel uncomfortable or insecure which is the main idea.
