Description<br />A x-ray of a human wearing high heels, bracelet, and a ring.<br />Red border<br />Words on the x-ray <br />“memory is your image of perfection” <br />
Analysis<br />Emphasis- The words and accessories.<br />Value- The human figure’s bone<br />Line- The contours of the bones<br />Form- The human figure <br />
Interpretation<br />I think the artist is trying to communicate that in today’s society that beauty and perfection has become more than skin deep and it consumes us and becomes us.<br />
