I Forgot To Grow Up

Allison Janicki's avatar Allison Janicki

A snapshot of time from an individual who is aware of their physical aging but continues to feel mentally and emotionally young. The overgrown vines and forgotten shoes tell a story of someone who has disregarded the negative stereotypes of getting older; or perhaps never grew up in the first place. Little treasures hide in the scenery for an interactive experience with the viewer (do you see a snake? a pencil? a puzzle piece?) invoking a sense of youth and innocence for people of all ages.
