How does your garden grow?
I’m sure when you hear the question “how does your garden grow”? your immediate answer is
careful watering and sunlight. When keeping up a garden you may find yourself nurturing your
plants, protecting them from rodents or harmful locusts that could shorten their growth. You may
even remove them from their spots once they’ve outgrown their home, or reached their peak. At
first thought of hearing this question, your mind may only wander on the subject of greenery, but
have you ever thought that maybe this question could also relate to human life?
For example, we treat our gardens as realms. We respect it, we monitor it and feed it with care
and love. Why is it that we don’t treat our bodies as such? We often find ourselves exposed to
negative situations/energies in similarity to locusts, which we wouldn’t expose our plants to
because we know the outcome will discontinue the growth. As we monitor our gardens we
specifically understand what our plants need in order to reach their highest potential; these same
practices we can apply to life. Growth is limitless.
Sometimes questions provide more perspective than statements. What are my weaknesses? How
can I improve my weaknesses? What process works for my growth? Am I consistent enough?
How can I make my garden grow? When we analyze our ingredients we can understand the
outcome results clearer.
My goal is to communicate with my audience that growth is limitless with consistency. This
show is to depict different ranges of growth and understanding of life. I want to create a more
colorful and vivid setting that takes you away from reality, and showcases it in a more “artificial
The different pieces will consist of elements of self love, growth, the desire to create from
surroundings in a positive light, and exploration of colors.
