I'm not exactly sure what I want to say about this. I recently did a small amount of research on thalidomide, and now it's like I've got a million thoughts all swimming around in my mind at once, but I can't sort them out or put the together in a way that makes sense.

All I can really say is that this piece is really beautiful in a really horrifying, disgusting sort of way (Does that make sense at all? I just don't even know...), and the story behind it makes me want to cry.

I'm not sure if I want to know why the man is breathing from what appears to be his intestine.


So, umm... yeah. Since I can't figure out how to say what I want to say, I guess I'll just say this: "This is a compliment. You did good."

this is actually very heartbreaking, even though it is very inspired and even clever. i can't believe how many people are ignorant to the history of thalidomide. just reminds me of the whole saying that those who don't know the past are doomed to repeat it. it kills me to think that this could happen again just because people don't bother to inform themselves...
