Here are my images for the “Paradise” subject photo. This time, I didn’t take a photo; I created some images using a software called DAZ 3D . I have been using this software for almost five years to create images and small animations. Of course I didn’t create the models, I just posed them and edited the robot textures to make them look similar to the Mac / Apple style. I hope this is not cheating. The thing is, I didn’t have the elements for any of the ideas I had for photos. I have to say, that I have been working on this all day non-stop, because for me it was easy to add a bunch of elements (coke can, vending machine, stop sign, grass, a marble bench, lol). But finally, I was happiest with the less cluttered, more sterile environment, and glowy filter to make it look more ethereal.
What I was trying to do here was to illustrate the Adam and Eve fall from Paradise story in the Bible. Eve is a mechanical woman created by Apple Inc, whose logo is an apple with a bite out of it. In some way I am showing how technology is our “Eve” today and comes from Man (humans), and how we are in love
with our technology and our creations. And again, as in the Bible, Man trying to create things in his own image. This results in something that is not natural anymore.
