Digital media artist, Ameera (A.E. Godwin) describes these images as a fusion of face and sketch, a shared exercise in “being seen”, revealing qualities or ourselves that others might not typically see.
This collaborative art project was a culmination of the Big Ideas Fest 2018 opening session centered on an experiential activity in revealing aspects of our authentic selves, facilitated by Ashanti Branch and the Ever Forward Club (everforwardclub.org).
