Holly Ballard Martz



On Martz’ chosen word ‘mokita’ and the piece that it inspired – Mydriatic spectacles are used as temporary protection from excessive light when pupils are dilated (mydriasis). Just as too much light can be painful, acknowledging the truth can induce discomfort and, because of this, we often choose to ignore or avoid what we know to be true.” – Holly Ballard Martz
