Student Narrative

If We Could Make It Out Alive: the pandemic and climate change. Inspired by the increasing single-use-mask waste and other COVID-related debris that were not disposed correctly, If We Could Make It Out Alive is a hand-embroidered poem book in the form of face masks. The set of five masks are detachable, and each can be worn separately. It is an expression of the bitter realities of climate change, specifically from the point of view of someone living in the tropical country of Indonesia. It is a visual representation of fright, sorrow, and being in a state of flux.
