To Hope

William Walther's avatar William Walther

A short dialog on the concept of getting better --to hope. Hope about hurt and healing. I used the leg because it's a big billboard in the air to represent tears and pain coming from the body. The leg with tears is knobby kneed and a different color than the rest of the body. The other leg is strong and muscular. I look at hurt and healing as a biological event and a psychological process--the tears are all negative spaces--not something that you can touch, just see. The tears/hurt in the head divides and unites, it takes both sides of the head to define the tear shape--a thought, a feeling, a sensation--there and not there.
