About this work:
Ongoing work. These works first emerged in 2012 during a residency in Johannesburg. I made them in response to articles I had read about the popularization of skin bleach. I remember thinking how crazy we are as a global society from the social traumas of the past, from being judged and dehumanized based on appearance. Initially the idea was to create an overwhelming figure to evoke this madness I was convinced of at the time. I am now revisiting them toward a much broader body of trans-disciplinary works.
