This challenge 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 world. The final image is of a joined reality in which both worlds are transformed, its style being inspired by Egypt. Also 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. My euphoria visible in the photoshoot is caused by that feeling of raising the Djed back to its rightful location, when I discovered the announcement there would be two judges ranking the video submissions.
