Head Wrap

I did a series of performance pieces after I left the Printmaking department at Cranbrook, trying to express my frustration with how I had been treated and perceived. In this particular piece, I recorded myself slowly wrapping my head in newsprint and tape. It went on for several minutes until I nearly passed out. Never really showed it to anyone, but it was pretty cathartic after all.

Portfolio Prep

In 1998, I was given the opportunity to lead a Portfolio Prep class with Tanya Gill. We taught a class of high-school students how to prepare some of their established work, but mostly, we helped them fill in the gaps of their previous experience with key pieces.
