My Ritual Open Call work began as calligraphic thank-you notes to my forebears and eventually became “gratitude,” my first installation with @ritual_open. Now that show is up in Oxon Run Park, and it’s time to think about the next location.
I went from Gratitude to Rage—and now it’s Resolve. As in: I will keep finding ways to counter rightwing backlash. I will fight for: a safe environment, bodily autonomy for every person, civil rights, indigenous rights, the right to grow food, the right to clean air and water.
Speaking of clean air and water, I need to find a new mesh material that’s less toxic. I’m relearning from the Undue Burden people that it’s not enough to say what you want—you gotta say it in a way you would want it said.
