Abstract

The artwork is centered on an embryo, which represent biologically how someone with autism comes into the world. On each corner of the paper, there is a person who has folded and hugging himself or herself, representing the solitary characteristic of autism disorder. Blue and red hues are mostly used to create a strong contrast and to represent how an autism person sees things differently than a non-ASD person. Because an ASD individual focuses on the center of an object instead of the content of the object, the red dot circles represented the vision point of an autistic person. The outline of this artwork is shaped by the hemisphere and colored with light pink and red hues to mimic the texture of the brain’s muscle because an ASD individual is associated with rightward shifts of asymmetry and has more asymmetry than it should be. At the end, this piece of artwork is mainly meant to show audience what autism is and how it differs functionally from other disorders.
