Entry Description

When looking through a polished glass jar, I see a distorted world. What I learnt over the years is that our personal experience influences how we perceive this world. We each carry a unique glass jar filled with our emotion or lack thereof, through which the path of light is bent and distorted. Shaped by my sexual and racial minority identity, my glass jar is filled with disappointment and frustration, through which the world appears to be misshapen. I feel compulsory to create this work because my vulnerability does not permit me to voice my feelings and speak my wound.
