Me, trying to look bored with video color bars/test pattern on the television behind me (found on a videotape my wife had).
Lit from overhead light and spotlight from side.

Wish I could have not had the moire-like pattern or the curved bars (no flat-screen at our house and I shot from a side angle to avoid reflections) or done a different shot, but our 4-month old needs attention, too...(pictures of her on our webpage.) :-)
Cropped, brightened a bit, resized, USM, levels.

This could have been much better if there was better focus and lighting on your subject.

very creative. i always seem to give higher scores to creativity over focus. mediocre ideas with good photos don't stand a chance against cretive photos.

Did you try shooting this concept with the model wearing glasses and having the test pattern show up only as a reflection?

That is because the screen is behind you.

Very slightly soft focus on the eye. And some distracting patterns (moire) in the monitor. Big plasma screen would have helped reduce that CRT effect. (72" should do it - answer any questions from the other half with "it's for my art").
