Early College Folio


This study is a self-investigation of the author's identity by exploring her two professions: an artist as well as an art educator. Her insights as an educator provided a background for her as an artist through the production of this series of miniature artworks created with cell phone SIM cards. A SIM card, which stands for “Subscriber Identification Module,” contains information tied to the identity of the individual using it. For this reason, the author chose it as a medium for creating an art series to represent identity. In the dialogue of artist and educator, Abro confronts changes to the way her students consume information and practice art, and the way many lives changed against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The Artist-Educator dichotomy has moments of harmony and moments of contradiction as Abro conceptualizes insights from her classroom and her studio in a time of rapid change and innovation.
