Making Sense of Things is a creative initiative to give our members a chance to be creative with the current circumstances. By limiting ourselves to photographing only objects, I wanted to provide an opportunity for members to find personality in inanimate objects. Making Sense of Things was inspired by the pandemic’s effect on our relationship with the spaces we’re in as a result of isolation. By reflecting on the things that surround us, what do they say about ourselves? What objects now surround us more often than before? Whether their choices in objects have a relation to the pandemic or not, members will naturally attempt to make sense of objects as a result of styling them together.



For this team piece, I was inspired by items I haven’t been using during the pandemic. These items are things that I miss using, but haven’t had very much of a need for over the past year. It was also inspired by the idea of travel, and the different places I’ve been thinking about going to once it’s safe to do so. This piece is titled, “Oh, The Places I’ll Go.”
