Hope and the Librarian: Avalanche
Hope and The Librarian: Avalanche, 2014. Mixed Media.
This is part of the larger installation for my BFA thesis that can be found under the "BFA Thesis" option of the menu . The sequence of events depicted is the cornerstone of Hope and The Librarian's story.
This specific event is actually the cornerstone of the entire Hope and The Librarian Project. This initially started as a conversation between my friend and I one summer; I was complaining to my friend about how I always get my hopes up even while trying not to, as though I'm scolding my hope like a misbehaving teenager and sending her to her room, just to have her climb out the window, not realizing she has gotten out until she goes and falls from a tree or something--getting my hopes crushed. My friend durning this conversation used another similar way of describing herself, telling me she felt like her brain didn't process her negative thoughts and feelings correctly, so that when something bad happens, all the bad things that have been misplaced come out at the same time--as though when one bad thing happens, everything else she has ever felt poorly about comes up as well, overwhelming her. This picture is the depiction of that--in the first panel The Librarian is hiding the negative memories, in the second panel Libby is coming across them, and in the third panel Libby is being overwhelmed by the negative emotions all stored in one place.
