Quiet Terrors, Quiet Joys

Quiet Terrors, Quiet Joys - delves into the complex and often misunderstood realm of mental health. Inspired by mental health's invisible yet pervasive nature, Washington created an anonymous survey to gather first-hand insights from individuals. Using the information from the survey, she translated the participant's emotions into visual representations of an insect or small animal. The chosen creatures serve as powerful metaphors, embodying the emotions and struggles of the participant's unique daily experiences.

“My hope is that by shedding light on mental health, I can promote a greater appreciation for the complexities of the human mind and encourage conversations that lead to healing and support.” -Janelle Washington
