Description of artwork
Current social media culture is quick to put on a pedestal anything to grab the attention of the masses for the moment. “Over Exposed” attempts to express the negative feelings and helplessness that an individual may experience with a negative social media incident. A turtle lays helpless on its back exposed for everyone to see its most vulnerable parts. It is elevated upon a pedestal to become a spectacle. The struggle is sad or comical but is sad for what it says about our humanity today. The turtle is a symbol of wisdom and strength and is totally powerless and can’t do anything to save itself high up on a pedestal.
