And The Stars Made Love To The Universe
“We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
You’re my wildfire every single night”
I created this multiple exposure with 3 images – a portrait, fire from burning alcohol, and the night sky (completely embellished because I get too much light pollution in my back yard). What inspired this creation was the song Empire by Shakira, which I recently heard and felt moved by. There is a beauty to the composition as well as the lyrics and emotion conveyed in its story-telling.
In school this week, we were focused on story-telling, so this just seemed to click conceptually for me. I honestly had plans for highly stylized make-up, but once I got the lyrical itch, I had to work this one through to the end.
