This was my first piece of work and it (hopefully) illustrates the idea of "Information Overload". It's a theme which struck a chord with me as no matter how hard I try to resist, I do keep checking my emails, and Facebook, and my Flickr page, and my blog and Etsy several times every day, and don't even get me started on TV, or my mobile.... It's entirely self-inflicted - hence the idea of the lady watering this huge plant that now has her stuck way up in the air with no means of escape!
I wanted the evil plant to be a rancid orange colour to show something other than healthy growth but in the crit my classmates said it looked like a path.. nevermind. Also I should really have put the lady's shadow in and added leaves to the plant's shadow. But you know, it was a quick thing and most of the "making" time went on the hand-cut type. Good fun though.
