Congressional Art Competition 2021

Kaylee Wiegele

I was sitting in my room, trying to brainstorm an idea for my art project, when I looked out the window and started thinking of how trapped or isolated I felt ever since the pandemic started. That’s when the idea popped into my head and I thought, what if I ask my Aunt to take a photo of me looking out the window with my mask in my hand? I decided to do a photo because it captures the meaning and expression of being trapped, and the reflection in the window shows what I’m disconnected from.
