While I'm not one to boast about my accomplishments, I can now take a step back, immerse myself in my installation, and genuinely feel a sense of pride in the outcome. Throughout this journey, I challenged my own subconscious and conscious limitations and resisted the social pressure to create trendy or superficially appealing artwork. Instead, I remained true to my vision and ambitions.

The execution of my exhibition posed its challenges, and as the installation period neared its end, I couldn't help but feel a tinge of disappointment and underwhelm. However, with a fresh perspective gained a couple of days later, I realised the importance of taking a step back, resting, and approaching my work with a renewed mindset. It dawned on me that my intention was never to overwhelm viewers or seek superficial attention; rather, I aimed to challenge their subconsciousness, or 'state of being' - which is often quiet, ingrained, and profound and this I believe I have achieved. 

Throughout my research and contemplation, I came to understand the significance of using art to challenge prevailing norms. It doesn't always require bold and brash statements; instead, the most effective approach involves creating a language through the concepts and outcomes of artwork. This understanding profoundly influenced the final presentation of my exhibition. So, while my piece may not be the most visually striking or captivating from a distance, I am confident that I made the best decisions to ensure that my concept and outcome speak harmoniously to each other.
