This image aims to represent someone in a deep state of tranquility, giving a literal sense to the idea that one is "floating" or can’t feel their limbs due to extreme relaxation. The bag on the subject’s head depersonalises the subject making their position and the work more open to interpretation by the viewer.


My advice to future students...

Use your time wisely, it slips away. Take a moment to think about your theme and what you are trying to say. Think about what you want your works to look like. If you are having trouble starting, just start with anything, something, somewhere.
