The line (door) between what the mind perceives to be the "real world", (the state in which we call ourselves "awake,") and the dream world, (sleep and "unconscious") is very thin.
The woman in the picture is in a night gown, mimicking the transition between the two, coming from the left side (day) into the right side of the image, (night). The smoke blowing out of her mouth is to symbolise the thin veil we enter when we actually loose ourselves into the "subconscious" (sleep).
I chose not to make the left side of the door much different from the right, as I'm not quite sure there is in fact much of a dissimilarity at all...one side might be mirroring the other, or, the dream state might be the "conscious" one, after all...Who knows, we might all be dreamers having a human experience...going home every night...
Technically, we drove all the way to the top of the mountain with the (very heavy...puh...) door in the back of the car. We carried it until we found the perfect spot...
My intention is personal, and might be far from what you see yourselves, if there is much to be interpreted at all...

This is a creative assignment where we were told to use 3 different tools in one image
1: a fork
2: a shoehorn
3: a light bulb
I do allot of bicycling, both mountain and road biking. It's during my spinning classes throughout the winter, I've come up with an idea on how to utilize energy while spinning...
I'm sure you can see where I've put the 3 different tools...:-))
Wish you all a happy 17th of May (you Norwegians) and a creative weekend to everyone :-)))

I've been very curious lately as to how my brain works in regard to creating images that are intuitively inspired. Images come to me in my dreams, occasionally I remember them and write them down. Other times, an idea just hits me, out of thin air, it feels like, and other times again, I see images online that stick with me. This image is inspired by another image I created. While working on the image above in Photoshop, I wanted to try out new things, so I did, but it did not work.
Yes, I`ve got a book full of ideas, how I practically go around to actually execute them, is a whole new ball game. It may take me months to figure out the "hows." And, the final result might not be at all what I anticipated in the first place...
