James fryer

I have to say that i'm not the biggest fan of Critical Studies just because i prefer the creative side of the course. For a Semiotics presentation, we had to pick an image and break it down into sign, signifier, signified, connotation, denotation....and i chose to look at 'Dementia' by James fryer because i liked all of the possible underlying meanings it contains. This is how i look at it:

1. branches and trunk - nature, long life, knowledge, age
2. Clouds - time passing slowly by
3. wooden structure of the tree - structure of the brain, mind, veins
4. leaves - green= sickness, loss of memory/hair/mind
5. face - old person's face with wrinkles merged with nature
