the hazards of sunbathing

This one's from my deep archives, one of the first 10 collages I ever made. Background
from a Scientific American diagram comparing the atmosphere of Titan, one of Jupiter's moons, in brown, to that of Earth, in blue. The text for Titan's atmosphere includes "thick photochemical haze" & "methane"--yuk! Sunbather is from Carlos Perez Siquier's "Muñeca, 1974/2007." Devils are from an illustration by Yue Minjun.


  1. Melting away in the heat - I´m wondering that her making is still on its place! Respect!

  2. Love this!! This convinces me to use lots of sunscreen :)

  3. WoW! Great images juxtaposed with great images. Gets the point across very well.

    One of my relatives soaked up so many rays during her lifetime the poor thing looked like a football near the end...convinced me to use an umbrella in sunny situations as well as hats and cover-ups. I do use some sun screen on my face but I am suspicious of the stuff in it and prefer to simply avoid the blazing star!!
