Carpe Diem is a body of work that is intended to express the emotions of young females who are chained to the massive and powerful nature. This work is inspired by the Middle Age English poem, “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time.” In the poem, the author, Robert Harrick encourages readers to seize their life. He states that youth is precious but too short so everyone should enjoy their life while it lasts. It seems that this old poem seems to echo through the ages and is shouting to us who live in the twenty-first century, especially to women. In the developed world, women are forced to shape not only their social roles but their body shapes created by the mainstream media. I often witness women who are chained by such restrictions. I challenged to express the women’s struggle by placing the model in the vast nature with a chain clung to her body.
