I chose to redo an assignment from earlier this semester. The story behind this was from a thought of mine one day while I was at home, bored out of my mind. I was sitting at the computer, and I thought to myself; I have the world at my finger tips, everything is a keystroke away, and I am bored to tears.
I started this image by outlining the disk on the hard drive and copying it to its own layer, and deleting the original. This would server as a place holder. I then found an image of the earth and layered it behind the open spot on the disk. This wasnt enough. I added a motion blur filter to give it the look that the world was being written to the hard drive.
