Description or Artist's Statement
A significant portion of my project is a handmade journal, which includes vignettes of physical details. This journal is four-hundred-and-ninety pages long, because The Bible says to forgive someone seventy times seven times a day. I invite those who view my project to participate in writing in the remaining pages of the journal. My desire is to offer a safe and anonymous way to share private experiences that are often left unsaid due to fear of negative response.
My goals for this project were to recognize the many voices around me, and to give one to myself in the process. My hope in sharing my experience is that it inspires others to use their voice in a powerful way.
