What I Found Out There


What I Found Out There, looks to Sara Ahmed’s writings on queer grief and how pain, mourning and melancholia have the potential to physically affect, change, or impress on the body. What I Found Out There resides at the intersection of public and private mourning, drawing on personal heartbreak.

Combining monstrous puppetry with an ethereal and emotive soundtrack, written and performed by the artist (in collaboration with Emily Dix Thomas and Rachel Blumberg), What I Found Out There is an emotionally charged and immersive experience that asks the question: what comes after devastation? 

What I Found Out There took many forms including a sound and sculpture installation at Boston University and several video and performances at AS220, Providence, RI, Sedona Summer Artist Colony, Sedona, AZ and Satellite Art Show, Art Basel, Miami, FL.
