What is human development?
The concept is defined as how we can create a greater expand the amount freedom and opportunities people have
I debated whether so certain concepts should be included in this piece. It is hard to think of adjectives about yourself because you never know whether you should be more modest about yourself and downplay your characteristics or boast about all the wonderful attributes you have. Within this piece, I attempted to balance out the two.
Starting from top to bottom, the first part of me I decided to include was level-headed. I can get emotional about certain things, but when a situation gets tough I know that I typically like to deal with things straight forward and solve things properly. So to depict this part of me I used a level tool to balance where my brain might be.
The next piece represents two sides to me. My shy and quiet side versus the part of me that just wants to talk. That is why I have the word Speak trying to come out of my mouth, but the K is still getting caught in between the lips. I also included the mouth sewn shut to represent the part of me that tends to keep my mouth shut when I am nervous.
The heart is another piece that represents several different parts to me. First, we got a protection over it which is why there is a sort of plastic film over it to shield the heart from getting hurt. Like many others, I had gone through a lot during high school. The shield also kind of represents a lack of trust. However, even with this, I included positive signs all over the protective sheet to display that I do try to still look at the brighter side of things. But the positive signs don’t cover the entire film because there are times where I let my pessimism get the best of me. The third part of the heart is meant to show a warm heart because I do try to be courteous and kind to others.
As a new addition, I came up with a new concept during class for my own personal interests. I centered things I liked and enjoyed around my heart because I wanted to emphasize that they are things I really care for.
The last part of this piece is meant to represent nervousness. I have a paint splatter in my stomach to show a chaotic type of scene for when my stomach gets a dropping feeling when I don’t feel well about something. I also painted the hands blue because they tend to get clammy when I am scared.
I wanted some sort of motif throughout this piece so I decided to incorporate sewing. I used thread in all places that represented adjectives as well as any place when I have visible scars to relate back to the writing piece we did in Seminar.
