Charchoal drawing on paper, lightbulb, transparency, plastic wrap, metal

Detail of traansparency

Kevin Strandberg, my photo professor, for giving me a box of transparency paper to develop this photo onto.
The structure in the photo is transparent. The photo of the skull is straightforward. The skull itself is a form of structure. The clear medium of the photo transparency underscores how this structure is clear and understood.

The drawing on the left is opaque and not understood. The skull is vague and warped. The paper is opaque. The structure is warped through a creative vision. A lightbulb exists between the two providing a catalyst to push the transparency and opaque nature. The light also serves as a metaphor for thought and creativity.
