I was really excited to start on this project as we were free to use any medium to interpret our equations. It took a bit of time to consider what I wanted to include because…there’s just so much that makes me, me.
To be honest, it was all a bit of a mess when it came to planning… evidently
and the mess just grew and grew…
But the end was perfect, I am very proud of what I’ve accomplished
This equation is me, represented by paper outfits.
At times I’m a colorful mess, though I am am also super particular about structure and order, therefore my end product is a series of origami dresses(which I would totally wear) flying on a pegged line.
I chose origami because it represents a series of orderly steps which I really need most of the time, yet the prints celebrate my love for color and patterns.
I’m really scared of lots of things and sometimes it can be an impediment for me to go out and try new things. To be a better me, I would like to be a braver person, like the song goes
“Here I am, a rabbit hearted girl
Frozen in the headlights
I must become a lion hearted girl
Ready for a fight”
For an adventurous spirit, I used Suzy Bishop as a symbol as I really liked her in Moonrise kingdom. I feel that she best represents an unrestrained adventurer with a few quirks I can identify with. I included her iconic binoculars and suitcase.
For the second image I used a color gradient to show the depth of the pool. I chose to paint in primary colors on a dark background to make it pop.

I’ve always wanted to be a farmer, to plant things or dreams, good thoughts and friendships and watch them grow. I also really want to be a tree, to grow where I’m planted, confidently at my own pace. The only thing that would make this journey of planting and growing more meaningful, is to be able to share it with others.

In 5 years time I would like to marry my love for craft and baking into something or rather someplace that I can earn a living with.
