Feathers and Hope is a photographic performance piece that speaks to visiblitiy. I covered myself with white feathers and in the other, I covered myself with black feathers. The 3-hour process was photographed as I adhered the feathers. I was eventually completely covered and couldn’t see. While the process was uncomfortable and claustrophobic, the transitions were like a fairy tale. As I moved from woman to bird to monster or strange creature, the attempt was to transcend the body and to address the politics of being seen and unseen.
