Accumulations of (not) doing, 2021

installation, participatory reading room and thesis project

"As I encounter life during a global pandemic, caused by a virus that has us all homebound, I continue my own struggle with a different virus that keeps me not only homebound, but bed bound as well. In this thesis project, I make my way around and through the questions of chronic illness, self-worth, productivity and a changing relationship to time that arise in this dual viral experience - situating the personal within a larger social/political context."

 

Accumulations of (not) doing invites audience participants to encounter text, sound, image and object; witnesses to sick time and the chronically ill body.
