For what felt like an eternity, I was stuck on that ledge. Fear had become my oxygen, living without it seemed impossible. During those moments, I preferred to be alone and face this fear in my hiding place, my bed.
Trembling and with clammy hands, you take the leap. And in that instance, the intense feeling you felt moments before, vanishes into thin air. The pressure that had been weighing you down seems to lift off of your shoulders. Suddenly, everything around you feels vivid and intense. "I can't remember the sky looking this bright," you think.
Reprocessing tries to capture my personal journey and experience with EMDR. I wanted to ensure that it wasn't just a reflection of my experience but also a canvas for the viewers to have their own unique experience. Each individual experience with EMDR is different and I hope that the blinding light and vivid colors in Reprocessing can evoke different ranges of emotions and thoughts in the viewer.
Isa is a graphic designer who mostly is inspired and influence by her daily life and surroundings. She has a love for bold design. Working with primary colors that create big contrasts. Combining analog and digital techniques is something of a second nature to her. She usually incorporates collages and printed matter with digital techniques. These are disciplines that Isa feels confident working with. With her curious and open mind, she loves to constantly expand her interests and learn something new.
In the future, Isa hopes to continue creating and collaborating with new individuals, expanding her network and working on diverse projects. She looks forward to the opportunity of engaging with different creatives, exchanging ideas, and learning from their unique perspectives.
Learned during the studies
During my study of graphic design, I learned invaluable lessons that went beyond technical skills, such as the importance of surrounding myself with fellow creatives for inspiration and collaboration, gaining confidence in my abilities to share my work and ideas, and embracing the pressure of deadlines and high expectations.
