My use of ephemeral materials like chalk, mirror, flashlights, cosmological imagery and projection express my fascination with
the processes and transformations of our temporal existence as well the interconnectedness to the universe and each other. In the project Projections: Vestments I’ve projected positive affirmations of my own like “Artist Wanted Apply Within,” “Have You Lost Your Way?” “I See Myself In You,” “You Have Everything You Need,” “Gifted,” “When Will You Be Satisfied?,” as well as phrases coined by Dr. Martin Luther King in his final speech in Memphis before his assassination “You Do Not Walk Alone,” “Fear Nothing But Fear Itself,” and “Promised Land” to name a few. These affirmations are done in signage commonly found in the hardware store “For Rent” signs for example, florescent orange letters on a black background with white trim. The thoughts and affirmations are projected onto the viewer in the form of a vestment, a uniform symbolizing the embodiment of virtue. The audio for the video is the sound of glass breaking and is heard before the change of each sign. The breaking glass signifies a break from the subconscious to the physical realm and reality.
