Top Flight uses personal memoir and the ordinary experiences of everyday life as a vehicle to discuss privacy, self-awareness, learning and personal growth. The exhibit, comprised of twenty-eight large-scale drawings, took the form of an installation, encompassing one wall twenty-eight feet wide and twenty-seven feet high. These drawings, made to resemble enlarged notebook pages, featured a variety of notes, lists, and drawings. They were hung on the wall in a grid-like fashion and presented as an autobiographic account of my daily life. Viewers were encouraged to explore the records of my personal life, discover hidden narratives, and ultimately, walk away with their own understanding of what it means to document and share one’s experiences.
