Seeing Eye to Eye

Honorable Mention

by: Trevor H., 12th Grade, International Community School - London, England

Artist Statement

“Seeing Eye to Eye” is a very meaningful piece to me representing how each of us is unique and different, yet still equal. The figure on the left represents all the groups of people who are marginalized, a minority or otherwise treated as inferior. The figure on the right represents the groups who are prioritized, a majority or treated as if superior. The viewer is meant to read the words imprinted on each figure’s skin and see which words they identify with and those words in which they do not. Then, hopefully, they can see the two different and opposing figures as equal, as a reminder that despite our differences we are all equal.
