l👀k tells the story of an individual experiencing Toledo through weekly journal entries, finding beauty in the ordinary, everyday things we who grew up in the city might initially look past. These entries document the landscapes, physical objects, and thoughts she comes across as she familiarizes herself with the city. Artwork by Midstory artist Helen Lin.
