This artifact is a cartoon of two friends who are riding down a hill on a wagon and they start to head for the cliff. They don't know what to do and they ride off of the cliff and hurt themselves. This represents the theme ignorance is not bliss by demonstrating an example of what can happen if you are ignorant to your environment, or to solutions that may help you in a troublesome situation.
The image above shows a small boy quietly singing to himself, meanwhile, a large dragon hovers above him, jaws open and ready to snap. The young boy has no clue that a dragon is above him, perhaps if he paid more attention. This represents my them ignorance is not bliss by showing that if you are not aware of what's around you, it may affect you later, and even hurt you.
Deenu is the ignorant man in the story, he did live happily but something was wrong. He also knew nothing about the outside world. The story shows an example of how if you are knowledgable and not ignorant you will be smarter and do tasks much better than before. This represents my theme "Ignorant is not bliss" by showing an example of how knowledge will help you much more than ignorance might.
This quote is by Martin Luther King Jr. who gave a great speech about racism and civil rights. Ignorance could be racism, you could have no idea why colored people have darker skin, which could confuse you and make you believe false beliefs. For example, someone could say "all black people are dangerous" if you believe them and are ignorant to colored people, they suffer. You would probably also suffer from ignorance. Rather than suffering you could ask questions and find out the truth. The quote represents my artifact by stating the danger of ignorance.
Above is Cypher, that's his code name at least. He lived knowing the truth about his world, The Matrix. Cypher had wished he had chosen differently, so that he didn't know the truth about the matrix. While talking to Agent Smith he states "Ignorance is bliss". However, later in the movie Cypher, the one who stated "Ignorance is bliss" later disappeared and the agents were defeated in the end. This represents my theme by proving him wrong, because he was defeated in the end.
The quote represents the theme ignorance is not bliss, and even states it directly. It then goes on to explain that ignorance can lead to horrible things, for example, poverty. Those that are ignorant to the world around them may not know that many people in Africa are suffering. Therefore, nothing changes, because they don't know anything about it, nor how to stop it. Ignorance doesn't just have to be something that hurts the person who is ignorant, it can definitely be those around them and usually is.
