I saw this bust yesterday at the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh .. It has really gotten me thinking about the way we use language and how we classify people .. This is apparently an idiot girl .. A death mask if I'm correct in understanding too, so two concepts that intrigue me .. At first I was shocked, then I started to wonder about why I was shocked .. It appears to come down to the ridicule and intention now used behind words that change what they actually mean .. Isn't that shit? I like classification, it helps me, we can't help who we are born to be yet we can help the way in which we talk about people .. If we treat all people with respect would it matter what word we used to label them with ??
