Change is an important aspect of life. During our lifetime, we experience our bodies change, our surroundings change, our environments change, and we are prepared to experience these changes. As we grow older, we get prepared to take the necessary steps in order to embrace change. However, in the last few weeks, change has been something that every single person has had to experience at the same time, in similar ways, and in a forced and aggressive manner. As a designer, I have always felt that change can shape my work while serving as a driving force to present new ideas. In this case, it is no different.

Embracing this huge change has driven people to shift the ways they work. For some people it has been more difficult than for others. My body of work will visually represent the way I have had to shift my working environment, and portray my feelings in a visual, mobile manner. In some ways, it shows the feeling of uncertainty, the forced displacement, and in others the thought-provoking questions that travel through my mind on a daily basis. With this exploration, I break some things apart and put others together, but in the process, I will be using a hierarchy of actions and visual scale to determine and present this change. This show will present visual imagery that responds to the ongoing change that we are all facing together.
