"I made this work from the detritus of my four years at Yale. I cut out tests, solo cups, cards, etc. The piece is a bit claustrophobic and overwhelming because that's what I felt over my four years there. It shows the things that pile up: the exams and papers that were once so important but no longer matter and are now just part of an overall image rather than its defining feature. It is a collage of memories and past experiences."—Isabella Huffington
