Bag Lady Collection
The Bag Lady Collection is informed by personal life experiences, ranging from childhood to early adulthood. I drew upon the idea of compartmentalization as a means to address how others categorized me in past interactions. All of the pieces in the Bag Lady Collection are based on incidences in which my race or cultural background were commented upon or called into question. Such events include biases in the work environment and racial labels.
