In a world full of information, people don’t take time to breathe. By projecting two of my poems out in public, I attempted to provide a safe space for the people of today to slow down and relax. Art, including poetry, encourages reflection and therefore peace. Two of my poems were displayed for three nights in a small, inconspicuous space to compliment the idea of a ‘safe space'. Safe spaces are often out of sight and allow for people to escape the eyes of the rest of the world. They, like my poems, are moments and places people find unplanned. “Red” is a personal poem that communicates the resentment and compassion I feel towards my own dad, and “17” is a look into Koreatown, L.A. youth.
