Ah, so, yes… “Passion Projects…” this is a term you may have heard tossed around the art community for awhile now and everyone kind of uses it a little bit differently but also kind of uses it a little bit the same. The way *I* am using it here is to refer to those projects that I am working for that are legally charities and that I feel very strongly about.
The first is Triptych: Journey through Cancer.
This project is near and dear to my heart for many reasons. First – it’s taking on cancer, so there’s that. Not just treatment and research, but the stigmatization and alienation that happens when you or a loved one is diagnosed. When that happens, the people around you don’t know what to do or how to act – you kind of get ghosted because people don’t know how to deal with it. The Big C, y’know? So Triptych not only is intended to raise awareness and help people process the very real and very actual BATTLE that is the fight against cancer, but also give them a framework where they can start discussing their experiences. And not just the patients, but their family, friends, caretakers, and medical teams, too – because this is NOT a battle that happens alone, but it does feel VERY lonely. So, yeah, check it out:
