The Stories Within
University of Iowa Visual Arts Building
We all have stories that are engraved into our being. They make us who we are yet we don't always share those stories because they are too private, because of the shame we may feel, or because we fear judgment from other. Through a series of videos and spoken narrative I start to explore the stories within myself.
The videos are displayed within the walls of the house, drawing viewers intimately close to the performer in order to see and hear the stories. Simultaneously, the same video is projected and distorted on my body, the wooden house, and the wall.
