When I began this project, I knew I wanted to address metaphysical questions, the big questions if you will. I didn’t know how I would address them or distribute my findings, but I knew I wanted to take the opportunity to devote serious time and effort into researching these questions. The questions I decided on weren’t found in a philosophy book or work of literature, I found them in a painting, or more specifically its title. Paul Gauguin’s masterpiece, Where do we come from? What are we? and Where are we going? fit right into my idea of big questions. The simplicity of these questions in relation to the vastness of their concepts created an irresistible contrast. I wanted to bring this same contrast to my project and create a visual language that supported it. These questions became the scaffolding on which I would fasten the rest of my project.
