A 7 piece work, attempting to visualize the fragmented mindset that epitomizes the aftermath of an impactful and emotional event. By taking de-contextualized phrases from UCSD's master plan and pairing them with surreal images, the words offer new meaning. In their new placement, they feel cold and confusing.
It's often enough that the UCSD faculty and student body receives a web notification on the latest sexual assault, to be cautious and aware. During my freshman year I was raped on the campus of UCSD, and so this piece wholly represents my tumultuous emotions, the images are segments of memories I have with respect to that time. My mom would send me boxes of fruit, something that was signified time passing and the healing process continuing; the phrases from the master plan hint to a flaw in the infrastructure of our university's system.
