Luna - Motherhood
"There is something moon soaked, and dawn flavored about her.
Something kissed by the wild and loved by lightening.

She looks like Artemis after a night of storm hunting.
She looks like the sun as it rises
after kissing the dawn"

Reification - Eat My Feelings

"You told me to eat me feelings, now I'm left with an empty plate"
Series : Reification

" Reification is a complex idea for when you treat something immaterial — like happiness, fear, or evil — as a material thing."

I struggle daily with depression and major anxiety, to the point where it greatly affects pretty much every aspect of my life.

Something as simple as getting mail from my mailbox can turn into a battle because I do not want to step outside, or be seen, or answer the door for a package...its paralyzing.

I have spent most of my life being told by others to "just get over it" or "depression is just in your head" so through this series I am trying to physically manifest some of the things I have been told or have struggled with.

Both as a form of healing, but more so to show others that anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc are real and very much material things to those who experience them.

Huge thanks to Kim for her assistance as the creative director, chef, location source and so much more. I could not do half the things I accomplish without her.

Reification - Depression
Reification is a complex idea for when you treat something immaterial — like happiness, fear, or evil — as a material thing. This can be a way of making something concrete and easier to understand.

Through this project I am attempting to give material presence to the anxiety, depression and other day to day mental struggles that so many people discount as just being "in our heads"

Wow thats awesome, I applied for a position as a vet tech there but never heard back about it. I ended up working at the Waltz Clinic for a while but quit.

I live less then 2 miles from the hilltop animal hospital.
