My big idea is purpose of life combined with destiny of one person’s life.  The left side puzzle piece illustrates the confusion of one’s life.  A lot of times we are faced with tough decisions in life.  Sometimes the decision is obvious because one is positive and one is negative.  This picture illustrates a decision that is a lose-lose, or win-win.  Those are the toughest ones to decide on hence the person with their hands on their head hinting confusion.  The person is also “grayed out” signifying that it can be anyone.  On the other puzzle piece is what one believes their life is supposed to end up like.  Once again the person is “grayed out” so it can be anyone.  The thinking bubbles are used to signify the “American Dream.”  Also there is a missing puzzle piece that should be in the middle.  This is missing because it is the end result, kind of like a biography of someone’s life.

Rough Artist Statement

My big idea is purpose.  In the pictures I see a lot of different things that pertain to purpose. A lot of times I feel like I don't know what my purpose is.  That could be illustrated by such pictures as the two question mark pictures or the direction pictures.  Also another one would be the boy that is sitting with his hands on his head and doesn't know what to do and looks overwhelmed about something.  Also there are pictures that would represent a reason for something.  Such as the pictures like the sculpture which when I look at it, even the smallest bolt has a purpose and it is to keep it standing.  The same goes for in life.  Everyone serves a purpose in this world.  Other pictures such as the free falling man, the railroad tracks signify following some type of path even though you don't know where it may lead because in the end the puzzle pieces will fit together.
