'Good Grief!' was on last week and was well received. I performed (with a guest) and I really enjoyed the experience. I had planned to spend the whole opening inside the structure. I cannot easily shake off the village. - Thoreau was about my ideal form of escape: a structure that would serve as both a workspace on its upright position and as a resting space once lying on its side. Moving, lifting, & tilting of the structure all had to be performed by myself. I saw these basic tasks as fundamental in representing effort in seeking some personal space to think or to relax.
As part of the 2nd year VCA Photography class, we put together this show Compromise. The idea was to ask a non-artist relation to suggest a modification to a selected work of our choice. And we did as we were told!
I submitted this image I took while visiting my parents in Montreal back in 2013.
Here's my end of year final project for my Sculpture and Spatial Practice class. I used an excerpt of the 9-1-1 call Amanda Berry made on the day she was rescued in May 2013 in Cleveland, Ohio. In hindsight, I wish I had documented the wall hanging with the square box on its own!
