Shifting between childhood and adulthood propels an uncovering of information and a new reality, as we become independent thinkers. While ignorance is bliss, knowing can be a burden.

In Growing Pains, Moriarty and Nguyen explore the weight of generational trauma, guilt, and influence within personal family systems. Through photography, sculpture, and painting, they manifest new interpretations of childhood comfort objects, such as toys, games, and play structures.
