Simplified and Slow: Seeing Life

No matter how old we are, our eyes always remain the same. Yes, vision falters, eyelashes falls off—but the vibrancy of how we perceive the world around us through our eyes remains the same. Oftentimes, growth is associated with change, but I wanted to find a commonality in our development that remains the same, hence the eye theme. These eyes are inspired by my own grandmother's, who has the most beautiful hazel eyes that have always fascinated me. Perhaps in the different stages of our lives, we are different in how we think and act; however, I find so much comfort in the fact that something like our eyes remains constant until the very end, no matter how much we change.
