The idea behind this piece was to create an explanation of the coral reef using imagery only and allowing ideas of how coral reefs work together as eco-systems through illustration. I started roughing out sketches of the different species which inhabit coral reefs looking into plants and creatures. I decided to look into reflection to represent how water corrupts vision this then lead onto a mirrored effect. The final outcome is a mirrored piece, this also allows the eye to adjust and discover different images within the same piece.
