discourses of care. I make objects and costumes to reflect an absurd reality and use humor to disrupt sentimental notions of care giving and receiving. Through a feminist lens, I interrogate the labor of love, and the labor of like-love, the low paid, or no paid , invisible, under-valued, devalued labor that is nonetheless essential to a functioning society. Among other things, I am interested in the effect of this labor on the body and on simple actions like sitting, breathing or sleeping. I mine the myriad languages of care--the gestures, utterances, or rituals that are not only formed by the tongue or hand, but by a lack, an impossibility, by fullness and desire.
