This chair, titled “Clarity,” is a visual exploration of my journey of introspection and self-reflection. When viewed from different perspectives, one will notice the complexities and intersections that exist within the chair. However, when viewed from the very front, from the point of the present moment, the viewer realizes that the confusion is only an illusion; the viewer finds clarity. The chair may be misunderstood when viewed from a distance, as the wooden structure does not appear to be comfortable at first glance. Upon moving closer, one realizes that the ropes crossing through the middle will catch them in a relaxed position. The seat of the chair is raised slightly, inviting the viewer to find intentionality upon sitting.The structure is constructed of northern hard maple, one of the most strong, durable, flexible, yet seemingly weightless types of wood available. The properties of this chair encourage me to seek intentionality in seemingly mundane actions and remind me that when I learn to look inward without concern of the past or future, I, too, will find clarity.
