“Domestic Icons” made to look grandiose or bizarre. Lisa, Noah, and I already worship salt, so this was sort of a no-brainer. Here’s a behind the scenes note: I took this picture at three or four in the morning the night before it was due, and ten or fifteen minutes later I collapsed into bed.
This is for the upcoming portraiture assignment, and is half of the self-portraits that we have to do. This one shows how others see me (as far as I know), and another one will show how I see myself. Behind the scenes note: the empty beer bottles were provided by my mom’s husband, John, who had them on hand. There are 49 bottles crawling towards me out of the darkness in this picture, can you find them all? It’s just like Highlights for Children, only sad, and hopefully not followed by a man in white knocking you unconscious and putting things in your mouth.
The dentist. THE DENTIST. You people are disturbed.
