“Lost” These photos are before the piece has been fired and glazed!!! This sculpture brings light to mental illnesses, and the way some(not all) feel while going through their own separate battles. My piece was meant to show how I personally feel. The eyelids hang because tears can no longer be held up. The tongue was removed because for a very long time I felt that I had no voice. I felt that no one would hear me no matter what I said, so there was no point. The microphone is off because even though it seems that I had the option to speak, I still felt I didn’t. It has a chain on it which goes around to the back along with the chord for the microphone. This mic leads to a small prison like area. This area is actually my way of showing the inside of me. The little person inside is myself. There is also a mic next to me, which as I’ve stated before, really had no use at the moment. The other two objects are a heart and a brain. I still have access to the heart through a little walkway in the back. The brain, is what is truly locked away because depression has nothing to do with the heart, it is a mental issue and should be treated as such.
