A Mobius Strip, Water Splashes, and Scarcity Issues

A Mobius strip is a familiar symbol of the mysteries of the universe and even of the infinite, and as such it makes a great metaphor for the challenges facing us all in the efficient procurement and use of water and water resources. This is an image that will grab a viewer's attention compelling them to read the messages being communicated by advertisers, editorial users, and social media campaigns. With such uses in mind the image has been created to be easily cropped to vertical, horizontal and square with ample copy space for headlines and body copy.

Creating Images Showing Water Scarcity Issues

To create this image concerning water scarcity I began with a photo of a drained rice paddy that look, for all intents and purposes, like dry cracked earth. In reality the earth was ankle deep mud. Next I photographed water splashed from plastic cups which then stripped out in Photoshop using clipping paths. I used the warp tool and liquify filters to shape three different water splashes into the Mobius strip. With the help of color balance and hue and saturation adjustment layers I was able to give the water a cool blue hue.  I duplicated the Mobius strip layer, use the hue and saturation control to take it down to black. I then repositioned the layer over the cracked earth to act as a shadow giving added depth and reality to the image.

Images Of Drought And Water Issues

This water splash photo can be used as a metaphor for water-related issues such as drought, scarcity, recycling and conservation. Mobius strips are inherently intriguing to most people, and create it from a water splash and you have a powerful attention grabbing visual for most water related concepts.
