Stuck In Time by Martin Wellman

This piece was part of the 2012 Brain & Mental Health Art Show.

This piece is a celebration of life and is dedicated to anyone who has ever felt depressed about this world or his or her life. At the left and right, representing birth and death, our consciousness exists as a single whole. At both sides the painting ends at a point, representing the unification of our consciousness. The green in the middle represents your life, while the blue circling around is everyone around you. The fluctuations of the green show the ups and downs of life. I made the background chaotic to represent our struggles, and the video itself shows the progression of life. More background info is shown at the start of the video.
