"oh my god becky, look at her butt..."

Every day we make choices, and these choices are often guided by our own judgments or the judgments of others. These choices include things as minor as the clothes you wear, or as major as the profession that you choose. However, these are not choices because they are so strongly influenced by the opinions of others.The images that I chose generally follow three categories.First, I mainly focus on works that show how the judgment of others affects us. Second is a series of works that show how judgment can have an impact on our appearances and the choices we make regarding them. Finally, I arranged a selection of works that revolve around the concept of higher powers and the judgment that surround them having control of our lives. Such higher powers that are included are religion, government, and war.  Works from this class that involve this theme of judgment are The Judgment, The Book of Job, and The Yellow Birds. 

"Perhaps while his mother was still alive, his father's unwillingness to accept any point of view in the business except his had prevented Georg from developing a real project of his own."
The Yellow Birds- "I didn't want to be responsible for him. I had enough to worry about. I was disintegrating too. How was I supposed to keep us both intact?" Bartle is judged by his superiors for promising to proect Murph.
The glass represents Georg. His father's judgement shattered him, yet he still stands and somewhat manages to lead his life to the (almost) fullest.
Judgment controls our thoughts, so the carved and modeled head and untouched torso and body of the sculpture represents how much impact judgment has over thoughts.
"Then Satan answered the Lord and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about all that he hath on every side? Thou have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land."
This shows the strides we take to alter our appearances to fit society's judgments of others.
The pianist represents Georg's father and the couple listening are Georg and his finacee. Music is such a commanding thing and somethign hard to avoid, much like the judgment of Georg's father.
"'He even has pockets in his shirt!' said Georg to himself and thought with this comment he could make his father look ridiculous to the whole world." Judging other for clothes we wear ever day.
"If I sin, what do I do to you, you watcher of humanity? Why have you made me your target? Why have I become a burden to you?" Why do bad things happen to innocent civilians in war?
