In this site-specific installation, I portrayed my journey from the California Coast (Santa Cruz) to Riverside, California.
I am fascinated by our cultural obsessions with the various rituals and talismans that we subscribe to for protection, good luck and safety in our daily lives. Horseshoes, rabbit’s feet, and safety devices-- all are mementi mori- signs and reminders of the precarious nature of life and our need for all kinds of faith.
Referencing the three sisters of fate from Greek mythology, my narrative toys with the notions of divine powers and the hopes we may cast upon these eclectic “goddesses” for bestowing upon us fortune and survival. Featured as jewels on an elaborate ‘thread of life’, this cast of characters are reveling in and ultimately submitting to the journey of life-- an unpredictable and ever-changing ride.
