Join Julieanne Kost for an in-depth discussion in this video Perception: A quick analysis, part of The Art of Photoshop Compositing.
…This image is based on a dream that I had where I knew that I…was at a specific location and I was talking to a specific person that I knew.…But when I turned around to face them, it…wasn't that person, and I wasn't in that location.…I don't know if you've ever had dreams…like that, but to me, they're really unsettling.…They make me question if anything that we think we know, or anything…that we see is really the way that we perceive it to be.…The window in this image represents the narrow…band of the world that we're able to pay attention to at any given moment.…
But I chose to surround it with glass, and not a wall, to represent all…of the other possible things that we're…failing to pay attention to or see clearly.…Everything outside of the portal or the window appears foggy,…blurred, and unclear, as they would appear in our peripheral vision.…In fact, it's only the camera that can make an entire scene appear in focus…at one time, not human perception.…I chose bats instead of birds because they seem more mysterious to me.…
