Description
The work comments on how the recent recession is affecting society, most importantly our well-being. There has been an increase in suicide and assisted suicide during the recession and along with it the use of helium has emerged as a new technique due to being undetectable in toxicology reports. Process becomes directly linked to subject as a restriction to low cost materials has been enforced in the production of the piece.
The work also employs still life theories in regards to the transient nature of the balloon, helium and the subject. The choice of display draws attention to the balloons form rather than its associated celebratory meaning.
