Gregor's Room, Student Work

Mahaley Grant

I decided to make everything appear broken, as if it had been so worn down over time that it could barely function as what it had been created to be. One of the legs of the bed frame is severely broken and much shorter than the others, and it is barely held up by two boxes, which have also slowly broken down over time and are on the edge of collapse.

My version of Gregor is that of a defeated man. He is a slug, a creature view with distain and disgust by his family and society. He is hiding from the outside world within a room of objects which match himself: discarded and worn down with use. Gregor’s family treated him like an unwanted couch or a broken dining room chair, and with one swoop, locked him away in a room to never be seen again. Although his family once relied on him, they eventually saw him as nothing more but a useless, unneeded object which could be discarded.
