A Perfect Lie by Griet-pearl A Perfect Lie by Griet-pearl
for D Nitsche's Conceptual Contest;here's the link: [link]

this is no collage,it's all glued together in real life :D with scoch on 2 sheets of paper-one black and one white;the lightbulb was slighlty rotated in PSP CS2 'cause it wasn't parallel with the horizon(doooh),used clone tool for some corrections,some masks,contrast and USM;

and now the concept: my inspiration was in a few lines from a song:

Make me beautiful,
A perfect mind,
A perfect soul,
A perfect face,
A perfect ... lie.

It's about plastic surgery and the way people choose to change, phisically speaking;it cand also have a lot of other meanings,I personally see more than one;the lightbulb represents life;it's about changing,about masks...

Anyway,that's what and how I see it :)

I love the idea behind this to say the least. I have to say it has a lot of strong emotion to it and it seems to be one of those things that not a lot of people broach all too often. I applaud you for taking on this subject to say the very least.
