Experiment: using editing techniques to place my futuristic city into different landscapes

 For my fourth iteration I used all the editing skills I have learnt throughout this assignment to place my futuristic city skyline into 3 different landscapes making it look as realistic as possible.

In order to make the city look realistic within different environments I applied many editing effects such as distorting the image and changing the contrast, opacity and hue. For example within the snowy landscape I applied cool colours and reduced the contrast, while in the sunset landscape I increased the contrast to the point of creating a silhouette of the city. I also experimented with creating a reflection on the water surface by duplicating the layer of my city and flipping/ reversing the image to create a mirrored reflection. I then used various filters and reduced the opacity to create a realistic looking reflection.

  I am very happy with the outcome of this iteration and I think it shows the progression and improvement of my editing skills using Photoshop.

Because when I was 13 years old, I was sent home for my tank top straps being a little too thin, but a boy could wear a Cool Story babe, Go Make Me A Sandwich shirt and not be looked at twice.

Because when I was 17 and I told a guy “No” and the next day the word tease was painted on my locker.

Because when I was 18 and just wanted to be friends, I was a bitch.

Because I feel the need to say “I have a boyfriend” instead of “No” because guys respect other men more than they would ever respect me.

Because society screams “don’t get raped” instead of “don’t rape”

Because I am scared to walk alone at 10 PM

Because being beautiful is the most important thing I’ll ever do.

Because when I wear my favorite skirt “I’m asking for it”

Because the song Blurred Lines exists

Because no means no no matter how you fucking spin it

Because a girl was drugged and raped with a beer bottle, and the boys who did it are out on bail.

Because I owe you nothing

Because pepper spray is a gift I receive yearly.

Because I am asked if I have a boyfriend more than I am asked about my mental health

Because my clothes say more about my consent then my mouth does.

Because the wage gap exists

Because “not all men are like that” is said way too often


Because I feel the need to say “I’m not a feminist but…”

Because I’m writing this fucking piece

Bit of inspo from the psychedelic artist Jen Stark



Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane

One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.

I loveeeeeee THISSS OMG
