    • A completely yellow room
    • One man sleeping on the floor with a yellow blanket
    • With hundreds of red guns and red army men pointing the guns to him
    • His hands are on his head in distress
  • 24. Interpretation
    • This picture shows how distressed the everyday man was with the pressure of atomic warfare
    • It shows how government problems can harm everyday people very emotionally
  • 25. Analysis
    • The use of repetition with the red guns and soldiers
    • Also these weapons make a pattern which frames the sleeping man
    • Guns point to the man as the focal point
  • 26. Judgment
    • I find this to be one of Sandy’s best pictures
    • I love the contrast of the dark red and bright yellow
    • I also appreciate the strong symbolism
  • 27. Inspiration
    • Sandy was always a big appreciator of all the arts. She never did quite focus on just one field of the arts seeing that she majored in art history and film and other fields.
    • But soon enough Sandy began looking into photography and she eventually even taught herself the skill.
    • All forms of art were quite inspiring to Sandy and she was quite the appreciator of them all.
  • 28. Inspiration
    • Sandy could be inspired by anything, her most famous picture, Radio Active Cats, was inspired to her through a dream
    • She does a lot of meticulous work on each scenery, some even take her 6 months to a year!
    • Each shoot takes one day, all clay figures are sculpted by Sandy herself
  • 29. Inspiration
    • "I think my life is completely upside down because I dream about ordinary life...going shopping, to the hairdresser."
    • Sandy has many absurd and interesting thoughts.
    • She is a creative being that can find inspiration in the symbolists things around her, such as frech fries and cheese puffs
