This week, the art piece that captured my eye the most was this installation done by Nora Ayala. It was very interesting to look at and although it might look cluttered, up close, it looks like she is trying to be organized. I like how her piece was very personal.
Ayala described how her previous works were impersonal before and empty, and this project gave her a chance to share her personal experiences with coming out. By creating this piece, she was able to figure out who she was and realize that she is not alone in her situation.
Her use of mind-mapping in her piece allowed her to create organization, along with a visual representation of sexuality. Like the many bubbles of thoughts and speech, she wished to create a connections between her piece, as well as with other people who see it.
