When Everyone's Asleep
When Everyone's Asleep depicts two large whales jumping out of the reflecting pool at the Boston Christian Science Plaza, as a human figure walks through the pool, trailing with whisps of light. I wanted to achieve a dreaminess, giving the atmosphere a fogginess and having the bright activities in the scene be enveloped in darkness.
This piece is greatly inspired by a video that my friend sent me. It shows a woman walking through the reflecting pool late at night, her footsteps trailing behind her in the water, no one in sight and so quiet - it all feels quite ethereal. I aimed to take that magic and push it further through my piece.
