My partner and I a few months ago had visited the local buddhist temple, the 'Heavenly Queen', excuse the pun, near Footscray.
Not only did I need a background image that had a horizon line in the centre horizontal of the interactive image, but the photo fit perfectly philosophically because I lend towards Buddhism as a religion.
The original idea was going to have the embrace happen at an airport, reflecting on the relationships I have had over a lifetime, and exacerbating the context of a loving embrace. I think that sense of impermanence is conveyed well within the confines of a buddhist structure.
I animated the image so that some sense of interactivity could be seen at the following link:
I have attached a unified pic here, that shows the imagined heart chakras located on the two dimensional plane in the centre of the largest square in the golden rectangle, with the 50% air, 50% ground, and the location behind.
