This is my M.A. final project in SCAD. I did a lot of journaling and reflecting in the early phase of developing the concept. I wanted to create a piece that documented my thoughts in the moment and also could be inspiring to people.
While pursuing dreams, we are sometimes lost in the journey and forget our actual value because of the many distractions in modern society. We work hard to achieve some kind of expectation yet forget everyone is unique and incomparable. The fulfillment of life comes from truly knowing who you are and what your distinct mission is.
