The Scales

Performance. Artscape. Baltimore, MD.  July 19, 2013.

An act centered on extending personal to public in the giving and taking of oneself.  Silently offering viewers to hold stones covered in a latex-like fabric the color of my skin, I extended my arms, attempting to draw them closer.  The ones who accepted held the stone quietly. A thin red thread connected us. I turned to another. Often I looked up to see a different face holding the stone I had handed out.
