Body Interventions (a series of live art interactions)

The project serves as a mediation between each participant’s mind and body, in order to explore with others sources of tension and pain and to cultivate micro cultures of consciousness in the body. During a day long event at the Pilsen Neighborhood's O+festival participants marked their pain on my body as part of a collective intake process. The body suit is now a traveling artifact and serves as a collection of people's experiences. Everyone who participates colors in their areas of pain on the intake suit I am wearing. Spectators and participants also filled out an intake quiz, the process of which served as a larger metaphor for how cultural habits, socially conditioned behaviors, privilege, and experiences with trauma, violence and injustice can create tension, disease and a disconnect between body and mind.
