I was a live-in caretaker for a developmentally disabled adult for my first year of school. I made this thinking about my roommate, who struggled through even the most "basic" tasks such as eating. He had to be reminded what he was doing every couple of minutes or else he would forget...

Bronze casting.

Focus by *generationwednesday . "I made this thinking about my roommate, who struggled through even the most 'basic' tasks such as eating. He had to be reminded what he was doing every couple of minutes or else he would forget...." DeviantART should be proud to have this amazing bronze casting in their sculpture gallery.

i faved this earlier, now find myself thinking about it quite a lot while reading "The Man With a Shattered World" by A. R. Luria for a neuroscience class. Fascinating book. Anyway. (I continue to like this peice) :)

Wow, that's quite a compliment, thank you.
I looked that book up online, I am SO checking that one out. Things like that fascinate me.
Neuroscience, what are you studying to be taking classes such as this?

this is a really beautiful piece. brings to mind all of the privileges we have as abled people that we simply take for granted every day. beautiful craftmanship, beautiful concept. you should think abouty showing this piece in a gallery if you haven't already done so.
