Something of Value - Work in Progress
- which I find fairly ironic since the tome was being disposed of when I discovered it, however, I found it of high enough value to rescue it for myself!
Relative values, I suppose.
I am working with notions and images trying to communicate different ideas of value.
For instance, personal secrets are highly protected, often ensuring safety of self.
The black and white image of the terrified woman would infer that something of value is about to be taken from her, perhaps her life, her freedom, her children. Which would she prize the most?
Sibling relationships are also "something of value", sometimes fraught with drama, othertimes precious commodities, but always building blocks of individual character.
