EDIT: So I've settled on a nursing mother tying off/shooting up. Did I mention I have an intense phobia of needles? This is gonna be hard lol
I have an assignment to capture human nature. I wanted to do addiction. Specifically a parent who is an addict. I would like to use heroin as the drug of choice in this as I'd like this to be more of a personal piece (father is a heroin addict). My first idea was to have a man cradling a baby while shooting up and my other idea was to just show his arm outstretched maybe on a table or on the floor (that way you don't know if he's conscious or even alive) and a picture on the same surface from what is to be assumed his child that says "to daddy" or something. Any thoughts? ideas?
my other idea is jealousy. I like the phrase 'consumed by jealousy' so I kinda wanted a jealous person to be devouring whoever they're jealous of. Alternatively, I could have them being eaten up by the jealousy. On the subject of jealousy, this quote by Sylvia Plath has quite inspired me "I am jealous of those who think more deeply, who write better, who draw better, who look better, who live better, who love better than I." because it definitely speaks to me on a personal level as one of my biggest and hardest flaws to overcome is my jealousy towards what I cannot attain or that which I do not possess (not material objects, more so talent, body types, etc).
Or if you have any other ideas? Any medium allowed. This is for a high level college class so keep that in mind.
