video stills from site studies/WIP
Experimental explorations of memory, sensory perception, movement, and time. Over a six week period, I revisited sites from my life where my body experienced extremes. I brought with me to these sites cotton twine and fragrant sagebrush that I'd recently gathered from trips to the desert. I bound small handfuls of sagebrush at each site and noted the coordinates. The bundles were later were hung on walls, labeled with their corresponding coordinates as a part of a larger installation created during a residency at Krowswork gallery in Oakland.
if i revisit these sites where i experienced trauma will i remember something new?
will my body change?
if i change the way i move my body this time around will it change the past/my experience of how the past lives in my body now?
if time is nonlinear can i change time/heal old hurts?
why did i bring sagebrush? it was like bringing a friend or ally along
why did i want to smell something thats not from this place during these site visits?
what was the point of all of this?
why did i rush each visit? did i actually rush them? maybe not.
go through each site and discern why significant
