How to Breathe Underwater by LydiaLingenfeld How to Breathe Underwater by LydiaLingenfeld
"...self-contained and breathing underwater."

Water + Scanner + Me

Concept inspired by a book of short stories with the same title about young women and their struggles in a world that could otherwise drown them.

This photo reminds me of Tori Amos's "Choirgirl Hotel" album art. I'd be surprised if you haven't seen it. --> [link] (that's a link to her album where you can see what I'm talking about.) Very similar.

I'm not sure... My scanner HAS started acting funny but I'm not sure if it was because of the water or the egg yolks...

Did you have like a tray? .. Or actually just dump water on your scanner xD
Reply
:iconlydialingenfeld:
LydiaLingenfeld Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011   Photographer
I just put water directly on the scanner xD Just a few large puddles.
I think I am going to try a clear container soon actually full of water to give a more submerged look.
