In celebration and recognition of Hepatitis awareness month, I made an Art.
One of the most difficult parts of dealing with the daily challenges of hepatitis is the stigma. It is empathy which lends us better perspective, so I chose to celebrate the phrase "Walking a mile in someone else's shoes."
The shoes are worn and weathered by all who've dawned them.
The finish highlights the brittle weaknesses of the shoes, feeding the imagery of the near broken appearance. But thanks to its new exterior, the shoes are water tight and stable once more.
Reminding me that perspective is just as powerful a force for the one sharing their shoes as it is for the one receiving.
