Together as One

Together as One is a two-channel piece that focusses on unity and overcoming struggle within a community through the use of visual metaphors.

 

This work utilizes stark black figures that are used to represent the experience of hardship. On the left channel, each individual is shown going through a motion of struggle. On the right channel, the figures stand completely upright, symbolizing the overcome of their struggle through their willingness and power. Through the use of side by side channels, the viewer is able to contrast and observe the process of struggle and conquering. 
A white background and stark silhouettes are used to leave the concept ambiguous so viewers can ultimately cultivate their own interpretation. 


As humans, hardships and struggle are inevitable yet there is always an opportunity to better one's self, help one another, and become stronger as a whole.
