Put Yourself in My Shoes

Yale High School

Our sculpture will be comprised of five life size sculptures of the human figure. All except one of the sculptures will represent leading issues that teens face that could lead to suicide. The remaining figure will represent the hope that there is a flip side to this very negative issue, help is available and recovery is possible. Hope is the main focus of our work. The photo on our entry profile is a sketch of our overall idea. The figures will be made from plaster. Each of the figures will have words printed on the surface that represent the issues being addressed. All of the figures, except the one that represents hope will be black & white. The figure that represents Hope will be in color. The faces of each will be comprised of a mosaic made of mirror so that the viewer will see a reflection of themselves in the figure.
