1984 has been one of the most influential books to date. You hear and see small little tid bits alluding to it here and there. But this piece is nothing like others, it's not discussing Big Brother and the invasion of government, it's speaking on different terms. Here, the man himself is about to pull the gate on his number one fear. He knows his life is about to end after the rats completely pick his face clean, but he pulls the trigger anyway. Outside, you can see people 'frolicking' as if they didn't notice this hot box where he sits, they're in their own world pretending to not notice this man's state.

Aesthetically the odd ridged texture of the man's body works well portraying his current helpless, broken down state. The only thing I would like to address is the color scheme. The colors are very vibrant and bright. I'm not sure how well it works for his skin tone, outside sure, but human skin doesn't have that color. Unless of course there is meaning that I am not catching.

This is a fantastic work of art.

WOW! This one is really great!=D I love the concept, very good interpretation of that Shakespeare-line. The character being boxed in, and children playing outside of it, also makes me think "expose oneself, or not expose oneself?" Being with other people would kill him alone. He'd feel CAGED in. Which is, practically, what he's right now.
