New Year, New Friends

My video shows someone who feels lonely and has no hope. Because of this they are not comfortable speaking or opening up to their friends and family. However with the new year and being slowly coming out of the pandemic this person is starting to see some hope which leads them to open up to their friends and loved ones who are super supportive.

Bliss

The entry illustrates several emotions such as being bubbly, and gives the viewer an enhanced experience. Being in times of distress for several people, I wanted to convey a more upbeat experience, than a video highlighting the negative issues revolving around the world.

Hopes For 2022

This TikTok is what people are hopeful for 2022. Hope is an important thing to have, because without it, you could lose yourself. That is why I made this video to show other peoples hopes, even if they are little, it can impact you life majorly.

Hope Poem

Hope Through the pandemic and overcoming stress by seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

2022 GOALS

I want to be able to help with saving the environment and help with any mental health issues that anybody is going through such as depression, signs of suicide, and thinking about the future.

2022 in Words

As we embark on a new year, it is essential that we both internalize and inscribe our annual goals. 2021 was a year full of sorrow, distress, and confusion. However, by compiling several achievable goals in one cohesive and hopeful video, audiences can reflect on how their resilience from 2021 has carried into the new year. Whether it be emphasizing the need for self-care or promoting environmental justice, accomplishing these feats will certainly instill more hope in our community. After all, the belief in hope is one of many overarching changes people want to see in 2022.

Stereotypes words hurt.

Since the submission is Hope and Justice my partner and I came up with the idea of making a video of what people say to Asians and to Hispanics.

Mask Up!

Throughout the nearly two years that this pandemic has taken place, it has become very clear that wearing masks has been life-saving. If we all wear our masks correctly, we can end this pandemic.

The subject looks strongly straight at the viewer as if to say “You can do this too.”

Hope for Growth

In my artwork, I tried to convey my hopes in 2022. I hope that I can grow as a photographer and as a gardener. As a hobby, I grow many plants(including strawberries, blueberries, and marigolds) in my little garden. Whenever I plant something new, It gives me something to hope/look forward to because the plants growth are a direct result of how I take care of the plants. I wanted to convey growth through an artistic way, so I had branches on top of my subject to represent personal growth. In similar way to gardening, personal growth is a direct result of how you act and how you look at things.

My Body

This piece is about women’s reproductive rights. Recently the U.S. government has begun to question the rights that a woman has in relation to her own body. This artwork is inspired by the overall hypocrisy of the U.S. government. Often the attempt to reassure women that it is their body and choice, is overshadowed by states passing laws that chip away at women’s rights. The female figure is missing a uterus in order to represent how much of a woman’s body is actually hers in the eyes of the government. The amount of body she has control over. The tattoos represent the choice she can make about her body and life. She can choose a tattoo but may not have choices about her uterus.
