Continuing on with the concept of portraying beauty and adding value to a life that is deemed “unworthy” I looked into rats. When you think of rats the first thing you think of is dirty, sewage, vermin, unsanitary and a nuisance. Similar to the chicks I looked deeper into what I could see in the body of a rat. I found a curled up image of a dead rat, the rat looked so peaceful and gentle but when mirrored also resembled a brain a vital organ to existence. I then used black thread to create beauty in something that society has rejected.
