Rehab by Davenit Rehab by Davenit
Just a thought about the rehab process. No matter what it is, love, drugs or any other addiction we learn how to protect ourselves.

Enjoy

Oh yeah, the syringes were hit with a blow torch and bent. Out of 9 that I had 3 worked out ok. Working with glass is fun but the stuff is pretty brittle. The apple is just chrome paint.

4 flashes: 2 below, 1 behind and 1 in front.

Wow. And I thought that the concept for this one was going to be " Am apple a day keeps the doctor way." I mean, I does seem that way. Doctors use syringes to get people medicine, not that it's good or bad.

Either way, nice picture.

And was it hard to get the liquid in the syringes after you bend them?

Is there actual liquid in those syringes? If so, how did you get it in there?

I think they did it before they took a blow torch to them.

I really like your comment that love is an addiction, too.

This is a wonderful image. :) I love the colors, and the execution of the idea.

I would also love to have it as a print, a kind of dedication to someone, but I'm not sure you have any intention of that.

'S unfortunate that sometimes we don't learn to protect ourselves. I think most of us have seen at least one case of someone succumbing to whatever his addiction may be.

Thanks a ton for your thoughts... Addiction sucks. :-(

Sorry about the print thing. I sell privately for ridiculously stupid prices (that I can't even afford) and putting them up for sale here would break about 9000 contracts I have out there. It's my art but it really isn't. :rofl:

:lol: No worries.

I saw some of those prices. :fear: Maybe one day I'll be able to afford it myself! :plotting:

And, it does. A lot. Shame Relapse is as much a reality as Rehab.

I guess I kind of take the image differently. To me, it seems like the apple (or person) is resisting change and doesn't want to be rehabilitated. We may know we need to change, and may even want to, but it's hard because there's always that part of us that is used to the addiction and doesn't want to change.

I hope you didn't hurt yourself bending the syringes. I know I would have. :) I can just picture glass and blood everywhere.

An Apple is always a fantastic symbol in an image its loaded with so much significance that crosses over into many cultures. I see fertility and impotence. The Apple being a carrier of seed and the symbol of lost innocence. The syringes being drooped and wrapped around each other in a pathetic embrace and never being able to inject their oily pigments.

The apple is still alive and well. Well, not alive because it's a fake apple. I have other uses in mind for it.

Hey thanks a ton. Yeah, lots of people think my stuff is rendered but they're just 100% photography. Infact almost no post used at all. It's just the way I roll I guess. LOL.

Thanks again.
