With the inspiration of a new book, I have been reading called “Remember, Be Here Now” I was interested to collect words that have resonated with me and create this piece as an artistic vocabulary. Not having access to a laptop allowed me to think of a way to create this vocabulary physically. Moreover, seeing the center empty towards the end I decided to make use of this and reflect my physical being with the words. Using ink pigment liners created a self-portrait. Representing the idea of words that are within my mind and artistic creation/process. I decided to leave my eyes empty since reading this book made me feel a separation from the way I perceive my life and self.
