Exhibit Statement: Jubilant, diverse, and inspiring, Joy is a feeling to recognize, embrace, and share. Since March 2019, the world has shifted. Fear, isolation, and panic have become norms. Unmoored from the norm, we have been drifting. Slowly we are awakening, our mood is shifting and we can see light in the future. “Joy is an intense, momentary experience of positive emotion”. (Ingrid Fetell) It’s intangible, that’s why people try to capture it in different forms to remember the moment.
