image progression: play reckless

The first image is the work I completed during the live story telling session one man shared about his childhood memories of his uncle. He recalled his uncle’s fun, spontaneous and outgoing personality–as well as his later hospitalizations. The storyteller explained his uncle’s deteriorating mental health, erratic behavior, and outbursts as well as his vulnerable fear that those issues could be heredity and he may possibly be affected later on in his life.
