LSE exhibition piece

 I have recently produced some art work for an exhibition at London School of Economics (LSE). The exhibition is run by the United Youth Development Organisation and explores the theme of 'The Lottery of Birth'. In my relief / mono print I wanted to symbolize that from birth we are immediately restricted from some opportunities. Here a blindfolded infant tries his luck at throwing a dart onto a map of the world. This for me connotes that some people are born directly into problems and that not everyone gets a fair chance at a life from the start. The Lottery of Birth states that our postcode has a major impact on our lives, we are not all born with the same opportunities, and this should be changed.
