Follies in Project Design

Project Completion
Dec 15, 2021

After 4 months, after countless hours of pouring over poetry, scribbling in Photoshop at the dead of night, reflecting on reflecting, my project is complete.

I feel immensely proud to have been given the opportunity to demonstrate my skill and hone my craft these 4 (well, 4 and a half) years, and I believe that this project is the culmination of all that I have learned.

Looking back over everything I’ve done over the semester, the poetry and accompanying artwork, I can see that I’ve used this project as a vehicle for my own emotional expression, venting the negativity within me to create a dark and brooding atmosphere on each page. For some time I was quiet… embarrassed by this trajectory I had put myself upon; it felt show-y and over sentimental, but I’m very glad that I allowed myself to express unhindered.

This project is a potent of myself, a twisted sort of self-portrait into my most vulnerable of emotions, and is thus very honest and sincere. It truly, in its entirety, is a collection of code, writing, and artwork that represents me, and it’s the first time I’ve done that. Fitting, to have capped off my time at Behrend with such an all-encompassing piece. It’s cathartic.

For all those who have visited this site, read through my ramblings, followed each step in creating this beast, I thank you. I hope you enjoyed watching it unfold as much as I did making it. I’ll never forget the process, and I may be crazy enough to do it again in the future…
