Metamorphosis

Installation, digital photographs, films, 2020

photographs in collaboration with Danielle Cunningham; film audio composed and performed by Grayson Fiske. Metamorphosis is the transformation process from one form to a completely different one. These individual films and photographs come together as an experiential installation that incorporates sight, sound, and smell. They trace my interior bodymind’s continuous transformation after starting a new drug developed for cystic fibrosis. The pink and red colors symbolize the inside of my bodymind and her perpetual cell renewal. Similar to a caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a butterfly, I envision my bodymind extruding herself from a cocoon of regenerative ectoplasm.
