Blackout Pain

eXpressionist Statement:

I chose to do my project about concussions in athletes because it concerns me and the people around me. When a concussion occurs, at the point of contact, the brain begins to be crushed. When the banana hits the wall in my image, it begins to be crushed and oozes out. Each picture in the sequence represents what is happening to the brain over a series of seconds. The texture shows how your mind is cracking and you begin to black out. The darker images represent the person blacking out.
