Collective Rebirth

I created this artwork during my first year of medical school for our Layers of Medicine class. It is meant to be an exploration of the connections we form through this arduous but enriching journey. This multimedia piece represents our communal metamorphosis from strangers to family and from students to doctors. Like siblings, we join together at different stages of development. We fight, learn, resolve, fail, persevere, forge relationships, and drift apart; but at the end of the journey, we are collectively reborn and transformed.
