The Human Condition

Image: My Bedroom by Baratlaut found at http://baratlaut.deviantart.com/art/My-Bedroom-162

I was trying to find inspiration for today’s post and came across this image.  Recently, I have been stressed out about school, work, and my future in the art world. After seeing this image, I realized how lucky I really am. I have tons of people that love and care about me, food everyday and my own apartment. I think this would be a great feature story because I think represents a branch of the human condition. To me the human condition encompasses the experiences of being human in a social, cultural, and personal context. It can be described as the basic part of humanity that is inherent and not connected to gender, race, class, etc. — our search for purpose, sense of curiosity, the inevitability of isolation, fear of death, etc.

I am a hopeless romantic and optimist. I hope that I can capture a more positive aspect of the human condition for this weeks assignment “feature”.
