Why I Made This: Nora Sadek

BFA student Nora Sadek has created a series of 24" circular paintings based on the 12 zodiac signs. The series begins with the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, and ends with the last sign, Pisces. Sadek—by the way, she's a scorpio—says, "When I meet someone, the first thing I ask them is their name, the second thing I ask is their sign."
