The Body/the Identity/THe Arti-fact

 

WOOD, FABRIC, SHEET METAL, SALT

This piece plays with the idea of being physically impaired. I was born with sickle cell and have struggled most of my life with what my mind believes it's physically capable of and the limits of my body. I tried to capture that dilemma by juxtaposing a sheet metal frame of my chest, (something that is light) to represent the mind's imagination, to a sturdy wood frame, (something heavy and acts as an anchor) to represent the body; since it represents my body I added wooden spikes which relates to the crystal like chemical reaction that occurs in my body at a time of crisis.
