Dreams of Ecuador
MetadataShow full item record
Many people have dreams, hopes and aspirations. Some may seem unattainable and others may be more easily achieved. When that dream is achieved people may feel a sense of accomplishment and/or it might seem very surreal. Surreal means strange, unreal, dreamlike and fantastic, which are all the things I felt when I went to Ecuador for study abroad. My study abroad experience is my inspiration and focal point for these images. It is true, although it may be cliché, that Ecuador was a dream come true for me. These images are a reflection of my experience abroad and so they are dreamlike and filled with nostalgia. Using collage techniques, I manipulated my images to make them more dreamlike, more surreal. Collage was also used to portray more experiences than a single image could. These images are meant to create a fantastical state that encourages investigation and curiosity.
