Covered By Tradition (multimedia)
A singular 1/1 multimedia photo/video/audio NFT which expands on the concept of the original work, a still photograph shot with 4x5 Fuji sheet film on a large format camera.
This self-portrait juxtaposes symbolic imagery that represent traditional societal doctrines to that of my inherent self. I explore the duality of experiencing life within two cultures and grapple with the concept of not truly identifying with either one, having an awareness of existing in the universe as a daughter of the earth with a unique identity. The white talcum powder is a symbol I use for purity.
The original photograph was my first art commission by Exit Art gallery in New York for the exhibit L-Factor. I chose to pay homage to Cuban artist Ana Mendieta in my work, with whom I share this spiritual connection of displacement and honored her by using the arm gesture from her earth art.
