What Was Shed
As one questions their past and eventually rebuilds their notion of what is true, and a new identity forms, there is a shedding of the old. Using latex, string, hair, and natural materials, I created a cast of my body and peeled away the coating. Turned inside out, I felt both free and vulnerable. I repaired the casting and set it to float, watching the past form an eerie shell that still maintained a life of its own.
