Artist's Statement on "Covid Juggler"
Covid Juggler dances through our created world to spin a global pandemic. Covid Juggler tosses us probabilities: who will catch it, who will have no symptoms and spread it, who will sicken, who will go to hospital, who will come out alive.
Covid Juggler cracks open our systems, reveals our strengths, our weaknesses, and fault lines. We respond with selfless dedication or selfish ideology. We feel fear, anger, confusion. We rebel! We suffer in isolation and revel in small moments of togetherness. But Covid Juggler considers none of this - just continuously probes our vulnerabilities, finding openings, seeking to perpetuate a deadly dance.
During recovery from a heart break, I focused on creating a sacred space for healing. Here it is!
