 Statement:
 
 
 
 I
drew
inspiration
from
the
poet,
singer
and
songwriter,
Jim
Morrison.


The
song
used
is
“People
Are
Strange”
and
it
is
off
the
album

Strange Days
(1967).
 Jim
Morrison
had
a
knack
for
being
a
bit
off
and
usually
doped
up
on
heroin
or
 drugs.
He
saw
the
world
in
a
quite
obscure
way
and
translated
his
visions
into
 songs.

 The
idea
of
having
the
elderly
mans
face
came
to
me
as
I
was
researching
 pictures
of
Jim
Morrison.
He
never
smiled,
and
always
had
a
deep,
questioning
look
 about
him,
as
if
he
was
hiding
something
from
the
world
that
was
too
dubious
to
be
 revealed.
The
actual
quote;
“People
are
strange”
is
very
broad
and
misleading.
 Morrison’s
definition
of
‘strange’
and
a
normal
persons
definition
would
probably
 vary
considerably.

 I
matched
the
tree‐face
with
“Faces
look
ugly”
to
represent
a
rough,
natural
 representation
of
a
human
face.
This
includes;
eyes,
nose
and
mouth.
It
is
odd
to
 literally
think
of
the
structure
of
a
humans
faces
and
I
thought
a
great
way
to
show
 this
was
by
having
human
characteristics,
on
a
non‐human
object.
I
paired
this
with
 the
next
picture
of
the
little
boy.
The
boy
is
at
the
base
of
the
tree
and
I
wanted
to
 portray
the
feeling
that
the
poor
helpless
boy
was
being
watched
by
the
big
tree,
 with
only
a
small
stick
to
defend
him.
I
feel
that
it
goes
well
with
Morrison’s
quote
 “When
your
alone”
because
few
things
are
more
frightening
than
a
little
boy
alone,
 lost
in
the
wilderness.




"People
Are
Strange"
 
 People
are
strange
when
you're
a
stranger
 Faces
look
ugly
when
you're
alone
 Women
seem
wicked
when
you're
unwanted
 Streets
are
uneven
when
you're
down
 
 When
you're
strange
 Faces
come
out
of
the
rain
 When
you're
strange
 No
one
remembers
your
name
 When
you're
strange
 When
you're
strange
 When
you're
strange
 
 People
are
strange
when
you're
a
stranger
 Faces
look
ugly
when
you're
alone
 Women
seem
wicked
when
you're
unwanted
 Streets
are
uneven
when
you're
down
 
 When
you're
strange.
 
 ‐Jim
Morrison
