"MOTH"clothing, Fans and recorded loop. 2014
In 2014, I shed 65lbs of weight off my body to reclaim my health and vitality-during this time I experienced the good the bad and the ugly of massive weight loss. The experience left me with a new understanding of how my society deals with weight gain and loss. I created "Moth" to explore the idea of personal transformation and the stresses and judgment it brings out in other people.
There are the voices of encouragement;" you look amazing" wow you are working so hard, wow, you go girl. And there were the other voices "your too thin, you look like a cancer patient are you sick? why are you depriving yourself? i liked you better before,you used to have boobs I loved your old boobs!
I recorded two loops of each side the encouragers and the discouragers, these play at the same time during the performance. The sound of the Fan represents the wind of change.
