Based on my personal essay from Seminar, The Last Time I Took the Train, I created a Digital Publication with some excerpts of my writing. I wanted to display both the struggles of the COVID-19 pandemic but also a lot of the privileges that I am lucky to have. I had a page to highlight some of the imagery of my bedroom and another to highlight my Bipolar Disorder. The illustrations I included in the other pages are objects that I associate with my time at home. All of the other images come from a camera I had when I was 12 years old, including the self-portrait on the second page and the shot of my current bedroom 6 years ago.
