DIGITAL DUST

About

Concept of the project: everything is going to turn into dust. This is the reminder we are mortal and we should keep that in our minds to make sure we spend our lives in a meaningful way.

Motivation and inspiration: the idea of the project is the temporality of life. I become interested in this idea after I saw the works of several artists, so I've decided to create an image filter for my friend, that can be used for Instagram or other social networks.
