The Cycle. (2014) filmed by Dylan & Scott Geraci.
As a potter I have learned that nothing is precious, and it is always possible to make something better. This philosophy has helped me find my artistic voice and has brought me to a place of contentment with my body of ceramic objects. Although I have made strides as an artist I still struggled to find worth in myself as a being.
The Cycle is representative of my own method of introspection. In this performance I am exploring the parallels between the cyclical natures of creation and my personal human experience. It refers to the process of construction I participate in with clay where I build, deconstruct, then recreate repeatedly until the object is satisfying and resolved.
A teaser for The Cycle that revealed the dress preparation ritual for the gown that was worn during said performance.
