The Complexity of Understanding People As They Live


We play strange, changing roles in each other's lives. The power of our own narrative is so strong that we're often oblivious to these roles, especially the ones outside our close circles.

The hand and paper cutout in this picture are paired with with the negative space of a man to illustrate the absurdity of attaching a whole individual to one static image, even though that is exactly what we do with first impressions, labels, and conclusive statements about others.

We are generous enough with ourselves to think of our identity in terms of process, not product, so this artwork questions why we don't afford the same consideration to those around us. When open-ended interactions are kept at the center of everything, social landscapes change and conversations are no longer scripted social encounters.
