Imagination of Salvation
Imagination of Salvation is a conceptual mixed-media art project in which I combine intellectual, embodied and heart-centered knowledge to understand economic, environmental and social pain. In Imagination of Salvation, I ask questions from my mindful-awareness practice: Where does it hurt? What is the pain we are reacting to, seeking to avoid or perpetuating in our way of interacting with the world? I ask these questions of the earth, air, fire, water and spirit; of the communities where I have lived and worked; of my relationships; and of myself. I ask: How can we transform our pain into power, through a radical combination of acceptance and intuitive idealism?
I am currently conducting research, documenting actions on the land, and creating mixed-media collages and sculptures in Al Azraq, Jordan; Athens, Greece; and the Adirondack Mountains, US.
