Fear of the Future or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
This work is a response to our current political environment. I am overwhelmed when I read the news every morning. Peeking outside my social media bubble is terrifying. How does one find a way to be okay? My work has always focused on documenting the work and people around me. Feeling an obligation to make work that speaks to the anxieties I have felt since the election, I began this series in January 2017 by burying used tampons in my back yard. Texas had just passed the now blocked “fetal burial law” and I began wondering how far things would go. Now that we are well in to the Trump administration, I am no longer in shock. I have accepted that the pendulum has swung and will swing back again. This acceptance, however, does not mean that I will not continue to resist.
