Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

Classmates, cashiers, acquaintances and strangers. Every day we interact with dozens of people living unique, complex lives entirely separate from our own. Some lives are so intertwined with ours that we feel as if we know everything about them. Some people we meet briefly, never to see again. However, most people we see, whether in class or at work, or in passing, we see in pieces. These details are only fragments of the people they are, robbed of the context that is necessary to make them meaningful. This piece serves as a reflection of human interaction and a reminder that we only get a glimpse into the lives of most people we interact with.
