312# The transcedence and decadence of medicine
The submission of artworks for IMU's international art competition has been ended on Tuesday. Themed "History of Medicine", a very narrowed yet pointless theme, where no one actually knows how to draw.
On the tuesday itself, i drove to uni just to submit my works at last minute. And i only titled and wrote the descriptions at the very last minute as well.
Same as last year, i submitted two blank inked drawings, which i will not able to win no matter what. I prefer to draw feminine, sexual and violent things, still.
Non winning artworks can be collected back by the participants. Better still, i can collect my non winning drawings back.
I required to draw a wheelchair in one of my work. I actually snapped a few photos of wheelchair when i went to the hospital to visit someone.
A prosthetic was also drawn in the same picture. But this isn't as lucky as that because i was totally lack of reference to draw. I don't have any real life prosthetic to refer with, therefore i drew it out by using my very own design.
Hope the judges can see that is a prosthetic there.
But it doesn't matter already.
As i mentioned i went to uni to submit my artworks on tuesday. I called chan out because we had something to do after that. Having an extra plain A4 paper with me, chan had an evil thought.
He wanted to enter the art competition as well.
Damn, this could be really funny. The deadline of submission is that day itself, on 5.30pm where the time the Student Affair Department closes. Having the time of 4 hours before 5.30pm, we decided to work it out.
It was a holiday that day where casual wearings are allowed in the library but except 3/4 pants and slippers. With that banned outfit we invaded the library before the infamous librarian chased us away.
We went into the com lab because chan needed to print the form out as to enter the competition.
Spotted yokie there studying as well for her coming pharmacy final exams, chan managed to get 3 pieces of plain A4 papers, plus a few color pens and a highlighter as the material to draw.
50% - i think you can already get the meaning of this drawing.
We went to the 4th floor and chan started his conspiracy.
He wanted to submit a work not for the sake of winning the competition, but to show the real side of medical field instead.
I assume that the theme "History of Medicine" wants something regarding the history and the progress of the medical field, where most of the people will think about the progression of medicine, pharmacology, and as well as the people who contributed in the medical field.
But being a Chan, an extraordinary people with extraordinary mind, he decided to draw something else out of the frame.
"People will only draw how great the medical field has progressed, i'd prefer to draw the decadent part of medicine."
Titled "Decadence" and i don't even understand the description itself due to my limited english comprehension, i think this work is going to be a big ass kickin' one.
You got to see it by yourself on monday when they exhibit the drawings in imu... Chan ones definitely rocks and stand out from the rest.
Even Sree was there to hang around with us. He won a consolation prize last year, but he didn't managed to join this year though.
Heard from chan that today he spotted his drawing at the 4th floor. Seems that the uni isn't that bad to treat it as a prank and throw away his drawing.
Lectures will start on monday and i'll be back to uni. Heard that there are more than 60 drawings submitted. Being an international art event, i expect nothing less from them. I heard there are some drawings are like primary school kid works though. Nonetheless, this could be the largest art competition i've ever joined.
But i have only joined imu's art competition only by the way, LOL.
Being an international event, that explains why the first prize is RM2,500 and the total of RM7,500.
But anyway, it's already "GG"-ed. I can't even win a consolation prize of RM500.
I didn't even know what did i drew.
A piece of crap...
No, i drew two pieces of craps.
