About the Project
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 the documentation of several events 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.
