The goal for this project was to splice two images together and make it look like a single image. I first thought of two things that have similar structures and textures, but weren’t the same object. This process took quite a bit of time, and was probably the most difficult part of this assignment. The first thing that came to mind was cotton candy and clouds. In this image, I merged an image of a cloud between a ball of cotton candy using Preview on Mac.
Ideally, the images would blend with a single seam, but there are a few places you can see where edits were clearly made. I decided to splice the image into thirds because I felt that having the cotton candy alone on the top wouldn’t have had the same effect as having it on either end.
The final product makes the shape of a heart. To me, this image conveys lightheartedness and tranquility.
