We live in a world full of “noise”. Information overload seeps into our daily lives, often infusing chaos and influencing decisions we think we have under control. We filter stuff we hear to keep some sense of order and ultimately find sanctuary for thoughts. This piece was a reaction to recent news about endangered penguins.
An important part of her process is finding the calm amidst the chaos.

While technology connects us all, it will consume us, filter our experiences, and keep us out of touch with nature if we don’t use it in a balanced way. If we aren’t careful, she worries virtual reality could be all we have left!
Balancing our use of technology with our behaviors will be key to preserving our planet and our experience on it.
The clutter of symbols also parallel mnemonics with amnesia; an idea inspired by a universal feeling of information overload, oftentimes resulting in memory lapse.
