portfolio > sometimes all i can remember is sky

This series is a combination of bodies of work working in very different processes that are exploring similar ideas about body, memory, and understanding the self..

The first group of pieces are are collages of text, photography, paint, and cut paper. They engage directly my past and how those memories repress, return, carry and intertwine with my understanding of who I am. Of what it means to live this life. The work is a visualization of what my memories are and how they work.

The second set of works are photographs that I am making as I am currently developing a video/installation piece as a part of this exploration. This started as cataloging the progress on the single piece. But over time they have become expressions of memory, of survival skills, and of both the inside and outside job that healing is. These photos are called "heart protectors".
