“Keeper” explores the experience of vulnerability and the toll it takes on one’s wellbeing. What lengths do we go to protect ourselves from feeling exposed? How do our mannerisms change when we feel unsafe?

Inserting a perception of myself in my work acts as a vehicle to acknowledge my vulnerabilities. The use of curiosity items and the multiple narrate my experience with fear. I hope to gain familiarity with what makes me feel out of place through these works.
