Yo. This is for my science project. I'm suppose to represent my disease for biology and stuff. I already for the 7 page essay done and this portion is the artsy stuff. We had to symbolize the diseasein 3 ways.. I may had overdone it. My disease [or should i say infection] is TB. I really really really hate the composition of this piece but it's for science not for art lol
Artist statements / symbolism:
>The boy's clothing is from the great depression period, and TB broke out in the U.S at that time period.
>HOWEVER, this infection was known since ancient time and was feared very much because you can easily get infected (hence the hands grabbing the boy).
>The hands also symbolises that humans usually infect one another and it doesn't come from animals [like the bird flu]
>He's in an ocean because basically he's drowning, in his own blood.
>There are clouds because this infection spreads through the air.
>The human skulls represent the hundred of lives that i took.
all (c) mine, please do not steal!
