We don’t do well with polarity; if it’s gritty, it’s got to be dirty. If it’s glossy, it’s got to be clean. No, that’s not how we operate; while our life is dirty and gritty, we always try to keep it clean. Our parents’ and our grandparents’ generations are great examples of that.

From My Paper Bag Colored Heart
Performance with inflated paper bags. A meditation on skin, objecthood, and liminality, through the historical lens of the paper bag as an implement of colorism. Performed in relation to my sculptural installation titled Domestic Exchange.
