The Deborahs Project is a time-based performance piece where I - Deborah - enlist other “Deborahs” to go out into the community to explore the abstract nature of time. The project began as a way for myself, Deborah, to investigate what many of us struggle with: the lack of time. Early on, its structure was used to create supportive scenarios that allowed myself, Deborah, to be in multiple places at one time: practicing simultaneous time. A key component to the project is that each Deborah wears a red satin scarf, takes on the persona of Deborah, while reflecting on the theme of time. Through out time, The Deborahs Project has grown into a community of willing participants who have taken the project into an entirely new realm of investigation! This community has revealed various aesthetics of time, an individual’s perspective of time, the desire to be one’s best self at all times, and what it feels like to - sometimes- transform into someone else. All of which has led to questions regarding one’s identity, gender, age, and the act of servitude. To learn more about the project and to witness it’s evolution in time, follow @the.deborahs.project on Instagram.
As an artist, I am finding pleasure in creating work that explores social situations. The Lullaby Project brings a private experience of childhood memories into a public space. Here, viewers are asked to transition from a vertically physical and mental place to a horizontal one. The setting offers a sound piece of un-produced lullabies sung by people from all over the world. This traveling site-specific piece encourages conversations about time, memory, culture, and how - in the end - we are all connected.
