This is from a performance piece I did at 621 Gallery in April for the BA/BS graduation show. It is based on one of my favorite subjects (I am still learning a
great deal about): Existentialism. After reading Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being, I was greatly influenced by the character Teresa and her need to feel a weightlessness that was both physical and metaphysical. This was also me dealing with the fact that I was about to move from my home state of Florida (of 22/23 years) and move to New York. I needed a way to take everything and represent it in something tangible and literally remove it all from my being. I sat in a washbin and sewed an "intestine" which was all encompassing.
