About the 13 | 31 Exhibit
The 13 | 31 exhibit is a collection of life stories. I have been actively journaling since I was thirteen years old. This year marks the reflection of that beginning age as I am now in my thirty-first year. This collection of journals encompasses a timeline of personal and artistic development and provides chronological cross-sections of life experiences, from an adolescent desire to avoid Jr. High School altogether, to post education questions about which career to pursue, and current questions of how to invest my time as an adult.
The reason for sharing such a personal collection of stories is to lead by example. I truly believe in the power stories hold. The act of sharing stories, fictional or true, brings people into a shared experience. My goal in sharing my experience of growing up (a process I often feel I am still undergoing) you might catch a glimpse of something recognizable, something you can relate to, or something that is completely opposite of your own stories. Whatever it is that grabs your attention, I hope that it will spark conversations about your own rites of passage. Your story is important and it should be shared.
