Obvious reference to the Orwellian vision of the year 1984. Had a difficult time getting a useful image since the lights had to be out to project the picture.

Can't understand how I missed commenting on this but I think it's great. Love the colours and that big brother vibe through some nice design.

Thanks for the kind responses, and to dhare for making this a favorite (it's my first!). In hindsight, I wish I'd have gotten back far enough to get all of the text in the image. Here's the original image projected on the wall, which I also created. That big ugly face telling you how to behave is mine.

Hey: you have talent. This is a strong image and very well presented. I even thought it was going straight to the top. Well, mis-undestood. Keep up the good work.

this should have placed much higher. Maybe not everybody (esp. non-US) got the reference to 1984 and thus missed the strenght of the picture.

1984. Interesting depiction. Words and power and overwhelm - wish we could see more of the person reacting to them. I like the cold blue color as well.

I'm going to vote as though you put this together entirely on your own (including the image on the wall) in which case this is very well done.

interesting. Too bad the words onthe right are cut off, it seems to be an important part of the photo, so its distrating to have to try to figure out what it says.

Not sure where I'm supposed to focus here. The words on the bottom right are cut off, and the top left words are very far from center. Not sure what you are getting at with this image.
