Independent Study Project: Year One
365 Days, 365 Works
Every single day, from June 21, 2018, to June 20, 2019, 18-year-old Nadia Daniels-Moehle created and completed sketches, portraits, studies of art, and elaborate paintings often including essays that wove together her independent study project CognEYEzant.
Influenced by the creative process, perceptions, and cultural perspectives, CognEYEzant features 365 eyes and their stories. While often an incredible challenge, CognEYEzant, a play on the word cognizant which means “being knowledgeable and aware,” gave Daniels-Moehle the curiosity, inspiration, and determination to persist each day, one eye at a time.
She asks everyone who views the project to reflect on the persistence and curiosity we all need to connect with one another and offers the challenge to be cognizant of the world around us and look everyone in the eyes.
