This piece is a dedication to my grandmother
(durational) In this piece, I attempted to embroider into a peach. My patience and carefulness were then tested as it became increasingly difficult to complete the task.
(durational) This piece was inspired by a personal poem "Home". The audience was encouraged to read the poem aloud. With each new rendition, I began to wash and scrub away at my face to try take away the words or the truth I heard.
This piece encompasses the mixing of brown sugar and sweet tea as a type of right of passage. The audience was encouraged to participate by collectively singing "Mmm, I Want to Linger".
This is a documentation of a personal "diary" mimicking the emotions of a burnt out relationship.
In this piece, I assigned 5 colors different personality traits. The audience was invited to choose two colors. I then recited the meaning of the colors they chose in order to question whether or not they associated with their chosen traits. Seeing whether or not the colors we chose subconsciously connect to our personalities.
The audience was given instructions to adjust the color in which the light was projected onto the object. They were then instructed to interact with the light and shadows of the piece that they manipulated through light.
During a small duration of time, audience members were asked to place objects within or around “potted flowers” to participate in a community garden.
(10 min) I remained upon the floor entangled in fiber that originated from the hanging objects above.
