l👀k tells the story of an individual experiencing Toledo for the first time through weekly journal entries, finding beauty in the ordinary, everyday things those who grew up in the city might initially look past as mundane. These entries document the landscapes, physical objects, and thoughts one comes across in the process of familiarizing oneself with the city. Artwork by Midstory artist Helen Lin.
