Artefact/Schematic Research

*Forgot to publish from drafts*

So we started looking into the Vietnam War from 1954-1975 and realised that they used this thing called Napalm. This lead to the exploration of what this was and how it effected the land/people. Basically, Napalm is a flammable jelly that is used in bombs and gun shots. It sticks and melts the skin of surface of different people or objects. So we came across Napalm explosions and the shape of them and the smoke clouds etc. The burns and effects are very severe and disturbing so I won’t include photos on that topic. One of the photos of a young Vietnamese girl was actually removed from Facebook because of nudity, where she has been burnt with napalm and the soldiers look as if they have no sympathy for this child.

We then looked at the brain and how people were mentally effected. We looked at post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is an anxiety disorder that occurs when someone has experienced frightening or distressing events.

This is where we decided that we wanted to look into the brain exploding in the area that PTSD effects. So we created a whole in the frontal lobe of the brain.
