When thinking of what my project was to symbolise/convey, using my box and textured drawing as inspiration, I thought of the feeling of protection versus our true fragility. This was somewhat inspired by my thought of barbed wire which is placed as a tool of protection yet is so destructive a material. I thought of how we try to build a certain type of protection around ourselves yet are never fully protected and in fact always remain somewhat vulnerable, or are attacked when we least see it/expect it. Relating this thought to the human body I imagined someone protecting their front/neck (a very vulnerable part of the body) yet being completely bare and unprotected in their back.
