A Soul Amongst the Crowd is about being lost in the sea of others’ emotion. People who have higher empathy tend to absorb the energy surrounding them. In times of global tragedy, it is becoming harder to distinct ones own personal grief with all the sadness surrounding them. This in turn creates so much confusion and frustration as to how to retain and express these emotions.
The piece is scattered with a symbol that was created by dissecting the word “grief”. In sigil magic, it is not recommended to share a sigil as it will make the sigil less effective. In this case, the sigil is deliberately shared because no one should hold the burden of grief on their own. In a way, the grief symbol itself will have less and less power and hopefully would fade away.
