When everything is shifting and changing how am I supposed to stay constant? This question has been lingering in the back of my mind after a year of drastic shifts for everyone. After reflecting on this question I came to the conclusion that you can’t stay constant. When your environment and the people around you change, you are susceptible to change with them. Yet one thing that can stay constant is your core beliefs. Which is why I decided to make a mixed media collage on the idea of personas and how they change. Particularly how my own persona changes depending on my environment. I have had a difficult relationship with my own self identity and how I want the world to perceive me. Despite this internal conflict of how I want the world to see me, my core values remain constant which I tried to communicate through the small pieces of my true self in this piece.
