I struggle with depression. 

Many days I am not ok. 

Sometimes it is impossible to remember:

The only way out is through connection. 

I struggle with suicidal thoughts.

Many times I have panic attacks. 

These things do not define me. 

This project is the evidence of several rituals I performed during a time of crisis.

Rituals is a documentation of several rituals I performed during a time of crisis, intended to highlight themes of representation, connection, and mental health. Instead of using technology to forget, I have used specific technologies to further engage with my own living culture, and find alternative paths to healing and connection. Each object is a reference to a moment in the past, present or future of my life. Each moment is treated like a memory rather than a plot point. Like interpretive dance, each moment is a feeling or expression that when strung together with other moments creates phrases. Multiple phrases together emote meaning for each viewer that become an experience.
