This challenge from 2012 involved creating a fan video for Adam Lambert’s single Trespassing. I set up a sci-fi photoshoot using three different outfits and environments to represent two rebels who are in contradiction with their respective reality, as they fail to abide by its rules. Thus they discover they both carry a Trespassing (TM) implant, which leads them to discover the other’s world. The final image is of a joined reality in which both worlds are transformed. Partly inspired by Adam’s video Better Than I Know Myself, this art project seems to involve the Tilted Earth Axis Theory, which I only discovered a few months later. In a few of the photos, I appear visibly euphoric – this is caused by the announcement there would be two judges ranking the fan video submissions.

Lifting the Axis
(i.e. true ascension is more like a two-way swinging door)
