Anxieties and Aspirations

By Andrew Power | andrew.power@yorksj.ac.uk

The period between your final semester of university and deciding your indefinite post-graduation plans are a peculiar time in your life; regardless of any outside influence or global lockdown, a mix of stress and accomplishment dictate the majority of this time. A focus on finishing deadlines, moving away from your university-based city and paying any attention to career prospects welcome a questionable amount of procrastination and a feeling of guilt towards personal aspirations, a desire to create in any medium appears to be a distraction from pressing matters. Therefore, these four images created are inspired by the feeling that endless creativity is a privilege of youth and the anxieties derived from a transition towards adulthood and responsibility cloud this aspect of your life.
