This body of work serves as an investigation into the concepts and burdens that, as a female millennial, impact me regularly. As the door to my education closes, I turn to a much bigger world with endless possibilities and responsibilities. With these overwhelming prospects, I find myself reflecting on how our society has progressed and worsened to arrive here today. I continue to question the passing down of systemic burdens, politics, and gender roles of women in the 21st century. Eve Leaving the Garden is a collection of textile works, photographs, and sculptures that serve as an exploration of these conditions that allow me to navigate where these responsibilities and difficulties come from and where they are going in order to resolve these internal conflicts of my own.
