Radial Weave Study

I took the “Sight” assignment kind of literally and created a kind of ‘Evil Eye’ dreamcatcher. The protection against the Evil Eye is a pervasive motif across cultures. The fear of what others think about you is universal and frightening. Perception problems, or the whole anxiety surrounding them, have plagued me my whole life. I feel as though it’s a direct reaction to feeling like an outsider growing up in suburban New Jersey. I used to fret constantly about whether or not people liked me. ¬†Only in recent years have I let some of these hangups go.
