From Beer Street to Gin Lane and back again -reflective J by Krystian Filip Jarnuszkiewicz: Text box

We interpreted today our starting point, that is Beer Street and Gin Street. The interpretation of these two graphic works is not obvious. They can be seen as opposites. 

Two worlds: positive – negative, full – hungry, moral – immoral, reassuring – terrifying and so on. However there is still another interpretation. In both graphics the characters look as if addicted to alcohol. It is easer to imagine a beer drinker to go for something stronger – gin, then gin lover switching to beer. Unless he will experience a radical transformation. 

Transformation - this is actually the key word for my project.

Both graphic could be signed “watch out: fortune is fickle”.

You may find yourself in both of these situations. Positive can turn into negative and vice versa.
