LOOKING GLASS

.

Do you actually pay attention to the details in life? Personally, I have to say that I definitely don’t really pay attention to that many details in life, but I wish I did. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to accomplish something big, that we fail to notice the little things that gives life its magic.

That seems to be a very common thing that happens nowadays, especially when at Penn. Everyone seems to be caught up in such a fast-paced life that small life details become even more minute. Similarly, in this day and age where fashion is also a way of self-expression, the little details are over looked as well.

Fashion consists of both the actual clothing and all the accessories that add more detail and expression to each outfit. However, since all the things combine to form a statement, no one pays attention to each individual part. Each part by itself could be deemed as too simple and not worthy of attention. What needs to be focused on is how they all come together and express something.

But contrary to what those people think, I think that there most definitely is beauty in simplicity. The little details that add up to be a bigger picture are the things that give life its magic, and should be the center of focus. Because of this, I decided to use the small simple accessories that people use in fashion to build a fashion piece in my still life pictures. They represent the little details that we overlook in life, simple and small but important. Small things add up. Then using the magnifying lenses to magnify the details of each object, I wanted to use that to represent the looking glass that we should be using to observe these minute details we too often look over in life. We do not need much to be able to notice the little things. We just need to be able to stop and actually take the time to appreciate the magic and beauty each little thing brings.
