As it is

As an art student, I have been trained to draw the self-portraits countless times. Like any skills, there are certain steps and guidelines in learning. Recognizing there is a gap between what I see in the model pieces and my actual appearance, I decided to express my appearance as it is.

The organization's flyer

This upcoming week on March 28th, the Neutral Zone is going to be doing a final culminating event which focuses on discussion about what it means to be a citizen in one's country.  This event will be largely focused around themes from Claudia Rankine’s “Citizen,” a book which tackles intersectional identities. As we have noticed, the world around us is changing and politics is becoming more contentious because we are beginning to better understand our intersectional identities. This dinner is meant to shed a light on what it is that makes us human.

A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through Instagram when I actually paused for a second: two photos had caught my eye. One was of a Japanese family in kimonos at a temple, faces turned away from the camera; the other was of a Vietnamese family, a father and son, their faces also turned away from the camera.

These were not photos taken by a photojournalist — they were images taken by a college student studying abroad in Asia. And for some reason, they made me slightly discomfited.

For decades, Wall Street has been viewed as an antagonist of the American people. Banks are continuously under scrutiny for irresponsible money management, with the notorious Public Eye “Award" dishonors frequently being bestowed upon them. This narrative was only solidified by the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis, largely credited to the Street’s blend of inadequate due diligence and austere greed.

Strewn in the corner was a pair of beat-up, grey and light blue Nike running sneakers.

“Are these yours?” my roommate asked.

“Yep!” I responded.

“Are you throwing them out?”

I kept doing this for a week, putting my sneakers by the trash with the intent of throwing them out and then taking them back.
