I had 3 different ideas for this project, but it was decided to go with the octopus machine. I had to deal with a long vertical strip for my image, which could be challenging. Initially I thought of having the image constrained by the dimensions, but later I was given permission to break the border, because it made for a much clearer message and a better composition with more sense of depth. I used a lot of reds for this image because I wanted to give a sense of danger, as the human resources are running out.
