Work Overview

The title for this piece is best described by a quote from Martin Luther King "Only in the darkness can we see the stars." What I take from this is that during times of great trial and hardship, we reach an understanding of the magnitude of life. I write this piece for the young people I met in during my time researching this piece in the Royal Children's Hospital and the Monash Children's Hospital, for they are all stars in their own right.
