What Caught Cargill's Eye
My name is Cargill Faris, I live at home with my parents and 4 of my siblings, another is at Purdue and lives on her own. I intern at the Harrison Center as a photographer. I attend Herron High School as a senior, graduating in 2018, in yet another chapter in my journey to becoming whatever I am meant to be. I aspire to attend Purdue University in order to study Political Economics in order to help to study macroeconomics in many countries.
I took a photo of a little wire man painting the wall green because I think it describes the Harrison Center well as it is not exactly hidden but not in plain sight either. I think this particular piece of art reflects what the Harrison Center strives to become, and that is different. The Harrison Center to me is a place where different is encouraged, a place where any artist can paint the wall green to express themselves.
Additionally I captured a photo of a wall because the Harrison Center is located in Indianapolis Indiana and the community surrounding it. The Harrison Center building has many aspects that meet the eye. In some areas the building is deteriorating showing the history of the location. In other places it is new and well kept reflecting the vitality that is currently in the building.
Finally, I froze an image of an art piece of a group of boards with lights behind each board panel, I view this as a kind of way of describing the people of the Harrison Center, different but the same. We are all people at the Harrison Center yet have different shapes, sizes, hair colors, skin tones, etc. Yet we all function together as a well-oiled machine whether that is by bouncing ideas off each other or reviewing each other's work.
