On the Verge of Tears is a body of work representing the liminal space that I found myself in after being displaced from the community I had in college. Unaware of the loneliness that follows, I launched into the world seeking to understand what makes me happy and who I am. The journey has been full of trials and tribulations. As I grow older and the complexity of the question has set in I've realized I am not alone. Currently, the country is going through a massive shift in identity and polarization, leaving many stripped of their understandings and afraid for the future. Here is my search for our tears.
