I think people take on characteristics of their chosen geography. So, today I wanted to become a sycamore, with a knotted rope attached, so you could swing over a creek and feel the sun flicker over your face under the tree’s canopy. This is my personification.

[a lil about the process on this one:

- took nude photograph in my studio this afternoon

- printed on cheap printer (see yellow frayed edges) on cheap paper

- print taped to kitchen window

- waited for the setting sun to blast through the sycamore leaves

- watched the tree’s shadows dance across my back (or positive space here)

- photographed the photograph w/ dancing shadow

- imported

- uploaded

- bam!
