Morgan - Round Like a Record
This piece portrays the 1980's and its inpact on youth. The record shape represents the new technology of the era; techno and synthesized music became prominent. In the background, the polka dots beneath the newspaper clearly show the bubble gum "pop" concentration. The layer of newspaper and use of mere comics and puzzles shows how the youth tried to break away from the political distress of the time by exploring foreign concepts such as time travel, space exploration, and other sci-fi ideals. The silver watercolor also portrays the technology that creates a silver sheen on society, and the fears of computer take-over. I am pleased with my craftmanship, but the composition, while made of many layers, lacks a concrete subject matter.
