13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

On the surface this is just a photo of my girlfriend wrapped up in some old 1/2 usable xmas lights. At the time I took some pics because I thought she looked funny, but now what fascinates me is how this one in particular resembles sci-fi depictions of a dystopian future a la La Jetee or Metropolis. Maybe I'm disturbed.
