Entrances.jpg
 For my project “Entrances,” I am presenting a series of typological architectural photographs comprised of a total of thirty closed doorways that have individualized linguistic information on them declaring such things as “staff only,” or “employees only,” etc. The purpose of creating this series was to uncover the obscure reality of capitalism for young adults. These representational images of doors are symbols of how most of us are actively trying to get hired by someone or start our own business soon after graduation from university. A closed-door symbolizes both potential blockage or passage, depending on one’s personality, talent, luck, education, connections, and circumstances.  As an international student studying in the United States, and a young visual artist intending to work on meaningful projects, I am starting to think about my ideal path, and simultaneously feeling some anxiety and curiosity about this invisible future. Whether a person has talent, luck, or connections that may get them a job, or lack them to a degree, everyone hopes these doors will open for them. The grey and low contrast of these closed doors allude to the anxiety I feel toward my future.
