Project Statement: This piece is an experimental taxonomy I express through video performance paired with poetry, sound and text to breathe life into the plants captured in the patterns of the wallpaper at 20, Webster Court. I am interested in the moment in which plants become abstractions as they are removed from where they grow naturally and transformed into wallpaper designs and botanical subjects. In my performance I evoke the violence inherent in this removal and categorization. The audio and poetic elements of the piece expand on the histories of each plant depicted (often ambiguously) on the wallpaper. What results is a reanimation of the dead, distilled, and repeated patterns of plant-life into a ghostly museum of flora that takes the viewer and listener through various rooms of the house.
