Line of Sight

Essay 99 • Nov 11th 2016

Looking is something that we all do constantly from the moment we wake up in the morning until we go to sleep at night. We're viewing life, looking, observing, staring, and identifying. What one looks at is based on their life and experiences which is why the act, in itself, tells a story. To expand upon this theme, I created Line of Sight to illustrate the act of looking and the intrigue created from it.
