Compartments of Self, solid wood and mixed media. When thinking about what kind of person I am, I immediately recognize the severance amongst the cultural communities within my family. I begun this piece by reminding myself of the benefits of my multicultural upbringing and how all aspects of my upbringing have shaped the way I am as a person and artist. I have formed a visual box full of allusion and representation of what has made me, myself. Beginning by observation, I form an artist’s anatomy in which my beliefs and morals lie. The structure is a formation that is stable and divided while accompanying both sets of elements. I settled on a box shape because of its association with domesticity and later decided to use a trapezoid form because of its arguing components with the box’s connotations. Making a conceptual tool box is the materialization of how I see the world and what kind of individuality I possess.
