A Requisite Failure


Video Reliquary

14" x 8" x 10"




I keep looking, looking.

And, there, I adore …

and only I shall know if

it was requisite failure;


and it was.



Microscopic footage of a butterfly metamorphosis, three chrysalis grown attached to a tuft of my hair, and the words of Clarice Lispector. These objects collect in a pinkish reliquary of sights and thoughts collected during months of carefully looking and experimenting with caterpillars, chrysalises and butterflies.


I see myself neither here nor there when it comes to the animal kingdom. I think of animals not in the lesser of two worlds (human or animal), but existing in a third realm, outside of human knowledge.
