"My Whole Life in a Still Life" by Ben Ridings

Artist/ Designer:

All of these objects represent a deeper meaning in my life.

The football represents my favourite sport and something that I have been involved in since I was 5. The weight and banana represents something I use to better myself to become a more successful athlete. If you look closely you can see the background of the picture flowing and revolving around the objects in the center. This represents that my life revolves around these objects. Also, the football being in the center represents it being the center of my life.
