Layered drawings, text pieces and video

(Re)define began when I started thinking about who I am, was and want to be, what I'm doing, have done and want to do in the future. As I am becoming my own person and making my own decisions, self and actions are being not only questioned but also judged constantly. Underneath all of the pressure and judgement of others- I have decided, I am who I am. For the longest time, I have hidden behind conformitites and went along with the standards and expectations of others. (Re)define is the (re)affirmation of self. I am pushing myslef, making decisions, (re)defining who I am, my philosophy and everything I am about. I am (re)claiming, (re)affirming and (re)defining... I am human.
