The Ocean ‘Pelagial’ arrived in the mail

Earlier this year The Ocean commissioned me to create the artwork for their new release Pelagial. The concept was to create an illusion of the 9 different depths of the ocean. I decided to do an abstract photographic representation. I set up a fish tank and filled it with water and had an accomplice blow bubbles into the water. I took high speed photographs and imported them into Photoshop. From here i layered the bubbles in section according to each depth to be represented and created a seamless dark to light image that could be conveyed as rising from the depths to the light. More images to follow.
