Disconnect and self destruct one
Bullet at a time
What's your rush now, everyone will have his day to die
Medicated, drama queen,
picture perfect, numb belligerence
Narcissistic, drama queen, craving fame and all it's decadence.
You've given in to all these
Reckless dark desires
A Perfect Circle
I don't like how our society has come about. I made this work to represent how in my opinion, we value appearance ( looks ) too much!
Almost every icon in the media is plastic. The idea of them is also, it is completely unnatural
. No one can possibly look like that in real life. I mean. C'mon guys.
It even goes deeper than my description. So why do we buy into this?
The main focal point of this project I chose was the term: Mushroom
So I based my art piece off of two interpretations of the word "mushroom".
Mushrooms are often seen as a food item, growing off of ground as fungi, natural.
However, mushroom can also be interpreted as to grow, expand rapidly or swell.
The front mushroom representing the second definition ( expansion ) and the back of the box drawing as the first definition ( natural/ as one ).
The outside is sparse in appearance to enhance the idea that we value outer appearance too tooooo toooo much. If a viewer were to judge just based on the outside of the box, majority would believe it is boring
, and move on.
However, those who do peer in will have a surprise. It is designed as a box because the viewer is forced to look closely into it to see the drawing in the back. This is an art piece composed for the individual, and not for an audience to see. Since everyone has a different interpretation, I wanted this to be for the singular audience. One-at-a-time kind of deal
I won't go further into explanation since I would like you, the viewer, to interpret my work how you would like
