About The Artwork: 

This black and white illustration shows two silhouettes holding a tin can phone, and the extended cord forms a heartbeat rhythm. This line is suspended above three candles, surrounding it with their smoke. 

The use of silhouettes instead of detailed figures suggests that the focus is not on the identity or individuality of the persons depicted but on the idea of human connection and communication in general. The fact that there are two silhouettes may imply that the communication is between two people, emphasizing the importance of interpersonal relationships.

A sinus rhythm is a normal, healthy heart rhythm characterized by a regular pattern of electrical impulses in the heart's sinus node. A sinus rhythm can symbolically represent balance, harmony, and stability, as it reflects a steady and predictable flow of energy within the body. It may also symbolize vitality, resilience, and good health, as a healthy sinus rhythm is essential for a properly functioning heart and the rest of the body.

Candles are often used as symbols of light, warmth, and spirituality. In this image, the fact that there are three candles may suggest a reference to the Holy Trinity in Christian theology or represent a triad of values such as faith, hope, and love. The candles may also represent the passage of time as they burn and gradually diminish in size, reminding us of the transient nature of life and relationships.

Overall, the image may suggest that human connection, communication, and life force are essential for our survival and growth and that we should cherish and nurture these qualities in ourselves and others.

"Become the artist who designs your own life. While others look at life’s straight lines—their height and depth and width—bend the lines with your imagination, turning black and white into shades of blue and yellow and a tint of controversy." ― Franklyn James
