I chose to represent the Namib desert, a corner of the Earth which has managed to stay almost untouched by the humans, keeping its original aspect. This creative route uses the image of a natural landscape, lacking building and other signs of human civilization , that impresses the viewer with the authenticity of a naked body without any adornments.
Which place, city and country is featured in your design? (place/city/country)
Namib Desert, on the Atlantic coast of Angola, Namibia and South Africa
Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?
Namib desert is a seemingly alien landscape, with the highest sand dunes in the world. Here, the sand has the most astonishing colors, from yellow to orange and even pink. I wanted to convey this chromatic richness, a real treasure for the soul of the visitor. I used this pair of complementary colors, orange and blue, as symbols of the hot days and shivering cold nights that together maintain the desert. I opted for a night landscape because it creates a more dramatic effect on the viewer.
