My drawing Final for Jonathan Sylvia’s Class

We were given two words ” wall transformation” and that was all the information we had to work with. 

I made a tapestry of words that created a frustrating and intimate space for the viewer. The text in the tapestry is illegible until you really pay close attention. Drawings are scattered across the floor and a recording of me singing a song played during the experience. 

I wanted to make a piece about the barriers and translations of words and how much mine have gotten me into trouble with the people I really care about. It’s been a really frustrating and emotional experience to have to let go of my tendencies to keep things very detached and internal to the point where I come off as rude or insensitive when really i care too much.
