“Pills and Brain 5” “Pills and Brain 5” contains a series of drawings fused together with the use of photoshop. The technique that was used is called Scenography in which the three separate drawings were scanned into the computer and put together with the use of Photoshop. This series of drawings was created to show the different parts of the brain that causes forgetfulness, memory loss, and attention problems. These symptoms are consistent with individuals, like myself, who have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). The blue images in the back are a series of pills that are taken to help me pay attention to what is being taught in classes. The words in the image are notes that I have had to write down to help me remember what needs to be done or what events are coming up so I do not forget them.
