We’ve removed the stars from the sky, and a path to getting them back is nowhere in sight. This isn’t to say that stars don’t exist anymore; however, when living in a city like Toronto, we can’t see something that is always right next to us. My project explores the contemporary relationship with our uncomfortably packed, fast-paced lives. Often, when young people have a problem, it can be extremely difficult to find the root cause, sending people down a dangerous spiral of unease and self-doubt. My project showcases a glimpse into this spiral, underpinned by an idea so simple, that we forgot, in the haze of disillusion, that there used to be stars in the sky right where we stood; we were too focused on what was in front of our eyes that we couldn’t see the forest for the trees, and now, can only tell stories of what this land looked like to the future generations.
