How unexpected circumstances can be embraced and turned into beauty
Vulnerability is fundamentally generous. It takes the first step of disclosure, in order to render it safe for those to unburden themselves and disclose their hidden selves in turn. It’s a gift in the form of a risk taken for somebody else.

How can we use our genuine selves and vulnerability to enhance the aesthetic of our work? By sharing her world of trauma and being extremely vulnerable, Mandy will show how her work became a success and brought her into the land of digital and VR. The beauty though, lies within the truth of being open and not very good at really anything other than that.

You are not casting yourself out of the clan for good by doing so, but rather we are just re-confirming our essential membership of the human race. It is something of a minor tragedy that we spend so much of our lives trying to hide our weaknesses, when in fact, it is only upon the dignified sharing of vulnerability that true friendship, and love, and good work and good design, can arise.

In hopes to create depth in design, we can lean on vulnerability and what we may think to be a weakness, as a strength. Our mark making is different than any other.
