Burning Bridges (Gift #1): Exercise for Banishing Palpitations and Gaining Perspective;
The Dream (Gift #2): Meditation Metaphor, Illustrated for Xtreme Studio, curated by Sabina Ott and Rael Salley as part of city-wide exhbitions and projects highlighting studio practice for Studio Chicago, A+D Gallery, Chicago, 2010
I asked for a message and was given the gift of a dream. The story of The Dream (Gift #2): Meditation Metaphor, Illustrated was detailed for my guest blog at Studio Chicago. Burning Bridges (Gift #1): Exercise for Banishing Palpitations and Gaining Perspective is an attempt to reframe and re-contextualize how I see past mistakes. Making the bridge tiny, I took my power back and burned it. From the Book of Giants: To pay back the giant for trampling her fields, the witch casts a spell: “My spell will play tricks on his eyes/To make things look two times his size!” A gift of eyeglasses by a courageous little boy who spots the solution to the problem changes everything, “Birds looked no bigger than gnats/Trees looked no bigger than grass”, and the boy and giant were friends forever.
