The concept is about how the crisis is affecting children directly. A teddy bear shedding its layers is symbolism for the innocence of children being stripped away. After watching several videos of children telling their stories, it was truly heartbreaking to see so many of them talk about the deaths of their loved ones so matter of factly, extremely traumatizing. Some couldn’t even remember what their toys looked like while others longed for friends to play with. As a mother, I wanted to shed the importance of the crisis and how it particularly affects children.
