“A Closer Look”
This collage was created using medical journals printed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At first glance from a distance, you see an image of a sunset. However, a closer look
reveals many different cut out patterns, images, and words that were intentionally and
delicately chosen because they were intriguing or thought-provoking to me in some
way. The experience of crafting this collage reminds me that #1. things are not always as
they appear–sometimes we must look closer. And #2. even in the midst of adversity, the
eye that seeks to see good can find it.
