Betwixt and Between
The transmorgraph, Betwixt and Between, was made for the surrealist dream magazine “Drosera.Comunicación onírica” in Madrid Spain. Betwixt and Between was made after experimenting with photographic combinations based on my dream. Once a basic composition was established, I transformed my photographs using Photoshop and digitally cut, blended, warped and painted the final version.
The dream ~
I was flying in my dream and a storm cloud suddenly appeared before delicate sun rays in the clouds. Blue sky appeared to be moving like a mirage of waves. Suddenly, I felt myself naked inside a cloud which was water, gliding and swimming with a school of fish, becoming as one of the fish, but realizing I needed to surface as I was holding my breath and needed air. I could feel my locks of brown hair tickling my back as I felt the presence of small fish finning softly against my back. As soon as I surfaced for air, I realized my long silky hair had transformed into a ceramic cat in the process of striking a fish above my body as prey. Just as I felt the fanged mouth on my head, I awoke.
