Speechless

Speechless

Emma McPherson

My piece focuses on the darker side of society and the media, showing how people can feel down and unable to speak out due to the amount of negativity the media shows and portrays in the world. I've tried to visually convey this by having the newspaper articles surrounding the girl and consuming her. The tape over her mouth and her facial expression also show the difficulty of escaping from the negativity and feeling trapped within it.
