“The are different ways people abuse alcohol and how this affects people around them. It affects the mentality of someone when under the influence, also of people who they interact with, depression being one such example, also social effects such as physical and emotional abuse, traffic fatalities. I used for symbolism a beer can, also flowers and rope to represent a way out of addiction to alcohol. I used red inside of the can because red represents a violent color and anger and used purple on the outside, because it represents peace.”
