How to Grow Wheatgrass, 2021
This space is created with intentions of offering a place to find peace and calmness within solitude. I hope to ambiguously shift the perspective between the mind and body, both visually and physically by bringing the outside, inside.
Within nature, I am often searching for space to feel grounded within my own body to attempt to silence overwhelming thoughts. Questions that I am confronted with is, what happens when even in nature, I can?t find a space of solitude and healing? What happens when spaces I thought I could feel safe in, constantly causes grief, self loathing and guilt? When I weed, when I tend to the earth, in yearning for fruitful crops, when I pour my love, care and attention to the ground, I am reminded of my Father and the atrocities. When I force myself to heal, to go inwards, to forgive by simply sitting or being with my thoughts, am I simply just repenting for sins? The hard labor of digging, of sowing, of tending to the stains of my Father. Who's sins, who's wrong?
