I matter because I matter by Nora Nicely
Grade 5, Ms. Singh
Artist Statement: My work is a short comic with a cheesy joke in it. When you think of “I matter because” you think of nice sayings like “because I make art”, “because I’m nice”, “because I help the world” which is all nice and correct, but I made it so “I matter because everything is made of matter” which is when you think about it, true. But also, if you think that you don’t matter, you’re lying to yourself because everything is made of matter.
