Day #1987

This is a self-portrait performance piece in the hallways of the Visual Arts Center (University of Colorado) created in my Post-Baccalaureate study.

I am visualizing the mental affects of Post Trauma Stress, utilizing clay as a medium to explain art as self-prescribed therapy. The soundscape features experimental sound and excerpts from Podcast channel: Changing Direction, Michele Rosenthal.

Tradition

This is the documentation of a performance piece displayed in the exhibition, "In The Waiting Line". I question the culture and practice of traditional stye tattoo emerging from the 1940's. I am interested in patriotism and liberation from system. The process of making purple creates conversation about gender roles.

Response inspired by phone interview with Brandon Derski, manager of Made To Last Tattoo, NC.
