I’ve become sort of obsessed with the idea of birthdays and the disappointment in them. Birthdays no longer hold the magic they held when we were children, and now are essentially just another day of the year. I created the image of a child at a birthday party no one showed up to. The importance of the date lost on everyone else, the child (myself) eats the cake by himself: enjoying the solitude of having an entire cake to oneself, while also grieving the loneliness.
