Anatomy of an Osprey
In this project as a sophomore class we came together to create a mural using the anatomy content we learned in biology. As a class we were divided in groups of three to four with the instructions to create a organ and relate it to our Animas community. I was in the group in charge of constructing the liver.
The liver we created, using watercolors and charcoal, has soldiers walking into an opening in the middle of the liver. The soldiers walking into the opening have no equipment and are untrained. They represent the unfiltered blood. The soldiers coming out the opening are covered with protective armor. The newly equipped soldiers then melt into the liver. This represents the blood from the digestive system and being filtered and protected. This liver is an important component of Animas because when students start as Freshman they are novices and as they go through school we become prepared with new perspectives and knowledge to go out into the world, like the blood goes out to the body.

The piece below is my "I am Essay." I wrote this at the beginning of the project as a representation of myself in the Animas Community.
