This visual represents how humans believe they are immortal gods whose actions have no consequences, and continue on their path of environmental destruction. They do not realize that destroying nature will also destroy themselves. In the visual, the man is littering the beach and killing innocent creatures, unaware of the tsunami forming behind him.
I contributed to the presentation as the Literary Luminary. I located and explained the significance and meaning of the figurative language in our section. I explained how the images and devices contribute to the thematic ideas of the section. I also contributed as the Visual Enhancer for the Literary Luminary section. I created and designed visuals that helped to reveal the ideas explored. The Discussion Director was a group effort; we developed a list of interpretive and analytical questions that we felt gave insight to the big ideas.
