|But I can't understand the holograph...|
I was hoping the text I added to my entry would have helped to associate it with the context I took it from.
The original image is a still from Star Wars: Episode 2.
It is originally the holographic plans of the death star which I photoshopped out to include the holographic plans for the blender.
Silly, yes, but to many people the death star is more recognizable than a multitude of national or international monuments, statuaries, etc.
I chose this because this is representative of where I come from. I am a Star Wars fan, I am a Sci-Fi fan. I would rather look over schematics of the starship Enterprise than tour many a national monument. Yes they all have history, so does the context from which I pulled my inspiration.
I think creativity and trying to stay on theme aren't balanced too well... one detracts from the other. Creativity is thinking outside the box, and while creativity can be kept on track, not everyone is along for the ride when it comes to understanding the inspiration leading to what eventually becomes a photographic visual of the concept or idea. Creativity is a stretch of what you would understand as normal and all the photoshop skill in the world wouldn't necessarily bring forth any help to clarify things unless the viewer is willing to allow themselves to follow the artists line of thinking. It is all about cognitive exploration of the subject matter at hand.
