My Business is Circumference
“Theory itself is assumed to be abstract: something is more theoretical the more abstract it is, the more it is abstracted from everyday life. To abstract is to drag away, detach, pull away, or divert. We might then have to to drag theory back, to bring theory back to life.” -Sara Ahmed, Living a Feminist Life
My work deals with movement, infrastructure and framing. I think about the sociopolitical through the micro and the physical: a car breakdown, a crack, a pipe leak. I value touching and feeling as modes of knowledge production, ways of understanding the world that privilege intimacy over distance.
Over the course of the last three years I have been making work alongside uprisings for racial justice, a global pandemic, and my involvement in labor organizing. These experiences directly inform ideas which circle around the work: rupture, anxiety, disorientation, and a call to collectively reimagine new forms of relation.
