I've Been Here This Whole Time


i've been here this whole time



An experimental typography assignment turned 3D sculptural and conceptual piece inspired by the phrase, "I've been here this whole time."





I chose this phrase to start a conversation about feeling isolated in the art community while exposing how I feel about my own work and personality in a world where artists are constantly battling each other for attention. I am essentially putting myself on full display, while also making a statement about the loneliness of being an artist—as reflected in the photos of the piece by itself on a gallery floor and in an empty outdoor space, almost is if it were “left behind” or forgotten.
