This is a photographic image, showing what happens when Apples decay. The use of dark background, dark lighting and dark surface that contrasts with the green decaying apple emphasises a sort of death theme in this image. As decay symbolises death.
In this way is the world afflicted with aging & death! Knowing this indeed inescapable and unavoidable nature of the world, the enlightened don't ever grieve! You don't know from where the dying came or where they are going... Seeing neither end, you lament uselessly in empty vain, helping nobody at all!
Dead flowers If I use plates for my idea I would like to have a full place setting of them and set up a table like display as an instillation. I think dead flowers would further push my concept that I have in mind.
