International Collage Exchange # 6 & 7

Barcode, National geographic images, NZ home & Garden Images
The words say " ...Bisected by 60 feet road, the slum borders a mangrove swamp and the upscale Bandra neighbourhood to the north....'
Title: Choices
Number 7 (as yet untitled) marks the halfway point for me and it's starting to look like I might actually get these finished on time. Yay!! I did # 6 (this one) yesterday and # 7 today.
Number 6 "Choices" is about choosing to be blind to the problems our communities face and becoming part of the problem or choosing to see and becoming part of the solution. It's up to us.
Number 7 kind of made itself! I didn't really set out with a particular idea in mind other than the 'society is a nest' theory that I have! It was fun to work with the netting again and even better to be collaging again!

I think you are building strongly on your theme, "society is(as) a nest" I love the juxtaposition of the old vs the new in this collage. It sets the scene squarely in the middle of today. The words are especially meaningful in the context of the collage.

I agree with bobbie and this piece sings to me. You've hit your stride with this one ... well done! :)
