1, 641, 2020
1, 641 kaolin pinch pots have been formed using reclaimed kaolin from the vessels in on, from, within// I become. The number 1, 641 is derived from calculating an approximate number of days that I will potentially menstruate for in my lifetime. Each of the 1, 641 pinch pots remain bone-dry so as to maintain the integrity of the bath water and oils within them.
above: these images are documentation of the work's installation at Miami Beach Urban Studios, which was paired with the piece on, from, within// I become on a monitor.

1, 641 (-6), 2022
During the night of the Opening Reception of the Playing Shadow Group Exhibition, one of the visitors stepped onto the installation of 1, 641, resulting in a loss of six pinch pots.
On this night, it was confirmed that I would not bleed for 1, 641 days.
In order to adjust, I moved the set of pinch pots that made the center point of the installation over to replace one of the points missing on the edge of the installation. There is no longer a center point; the installation now exists solely as a set of concentric circles pulsing outwards.
these images are documentation of the work's installation at One World Gallery in North Miami, which included the projection of the piece on, from, wihtin// I become.
