Community is changing. The way we identify and create communities contrasts with the ways and traditions of previous generations.
This work is the output of a process which at the time of making this, I was in a state of self doubt and fear which caused me pain. Sure, this pain is relative to my experiences but like many of the millennial generation my identity is in turmoil. It is no longer a fixed point and is made up of overlapping and often conflicting layers.
I was drawn to coming back to the tactile nature of hand written diaries combined with the printed self-portrait because of these issues. This piece is simply the expression of a desire to understand my place.
