Underwater Photo Manipulation for Desktopography

Unravel by Mario Sánchez Nevado


“While you are away,
my heart comes undone
and slowly,
in a ball of yarn.
It’ll never return it back.”

Björk’s “Unravel” from Homogenic (1998).

Underwater, surreal photo manipulated digital illustration, with the purpose of the production of wallpapers for the 2012 exhibition of Desktopgraphy.

At their best, desktop wallpapers bring animation to often lifeless computer screens, reflecting the personality of the user and acting as a calling card for creative talent. The Desktopography project arrived in 2005 as a place to download nature / topological themed wallpapers with edits from selected designers.

For the designer, creating wallpapers is a great way to perfect your craft and create images specifically for different environments from desktops and laptops to mobile phones and MP3 players.

Ever since its conception, Desktopography has been a non–profit, fun project and we would encourage you to share this site with family, friends and people you know, there is something here for everyone not just designers. All of the wallpapers here can be downloaded in a variety of sizes.

You can visit the “Unravel” specific page on Desktopography to download your preferred wallpaper size (available in all standard format) by clicking here.

‘Nuff said, enjoy!
