Life and Death



My final outcome was based around alternative medicines and practices, referencing both modern and historical ideals and symbols. In my overall outcome I made individual props ranging from a goat horn for demons and Baphomet symbolisms, to modern witchery ingredients such as oregano and modern medicines sold from doctors and prescriptions. I wanted the viewer to experience both apprehension from the miscommunications of past practices and what they stand for, but also intrigue upon seeing them paired with better known details like crushed up eggshells, herbs and recreational drug THC or also known as Cannabis (represented with catnip). These opposing feelings are to allow the viewer to contemplate if the popularized stereotypical stories and views are truthful and educated and not just fear of the unknown.
