Shield of Comfort, Audacious Shield

This project explores the sensation of being vulnerable and covered by a shield of tendencies and comfort. Through the exploration of breaking barriers and the rewarding feeling of being unapologetic and bold, we discover the polarities of these sensations and search for a balance.
