Post traumatic meditation, realization, and growth. A secret story hidden within intricately illustrated anxiety. The 33 hour performance spanned two weeks. A goal was set and met. Afterwards the piece was painted over to give it an existence as ephemeral as the experience of making it. Subtly, the fragments of prose told my account of being raped, sewing the narrative of memories and highlighting unresolved issues.
