Unscramble the Blue Letters

So here's another example. (Laughter) One might think that this is just an image of a landscape and the lower part is what's manipulated. But this image is actually entirely cmepsood of photographs from different locations. I personally think that it's eseair to actually cretae a place than to find a place, because then you don't need to compromise with the iedas in your head. But it does require a lot of planning. And getting this idea during winter, I knew that I had several months to plan it, to find the different laonctios for the pieces of the pzlzue basically. So for example, the fish was captured on a fishing trip. The shores are from a different location. The underwater part was crputead in a stone pit. And yeah, I even turned the house on top of the island red to make it look more Swedish.

Original Text

So here's another example. (Laughter) One might think that this is just an image of a landscape and the lower part is what's manipulated. But this image is actually entirely composed of photographs from different locations. I personally think that it's easier to actually create a place than to find a place, because then you don't need to compromise with the ideas in your head. But it does require a lot of planning. And getting this idea during winter, I knew that I had several months to plan it, to find the different locations for the pieces of the puzzle basically. So for example, the fish was captured on a fishing trip. The shores are from a different location. The underwater part was captured in a stone pit. And yeah, I even turned the house on top of the island red to make it look more Swedish.
