you are a sum of your life experiences

Dennis O'Mara's avatar Dennis O'Mara

The piece is created from reclaimed doors and the face etched into the door surrounded by words that represent some experiences that make us who we are . The face is etched into center door the words are jumbled together like a lifetime of experiences are mixed together. I chose doors because they show a lifetime of wear and tear that left a mark on these old doors. Words that describe life experiences are added to main door and jumbled together like the experiences that occur during your life that shaped you. During art prize visitors will have the opportunity to leave a word or a short line that describes an important event in their life on a post it note and place it on the side doors. The side doors will be the sum of the life experiences that make up the viewers of art prize.
