"To Kill A Mockingbird" is a work of genius that confronts the racial tension of the 1930s in the south through the lens of a little and strong-willed girl, Scout. Atticus, Scout's Father, sits her down one day and share this beautiful quote and piece of wisdom with her, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." I chose to represent this quote because it is something so relevant for our contemporary world. It is time for us to create a dialogue with those who are different from ourselves.
This creation is inspired by the innocent and childlike nature of Scout Finch. It is a collage made up of simple shapes to represent the simple, yet complex nature of this young woman.
