& gallery, Miami, FL 

(2017)

Presented from the personal South Florida encounter of Hurricane Irma, Oracle is a swirling hurricane-soaked denim vortex displaying the multi-faceted realities of surviving the environmental and social turbulences of 2017.

 

The hurricane installation is made of blue jeans collected over the course hurricane season and that were tied around fence posts as Irma made her way over South Florida. Audio recorded from the events during and after the storm archive both intimate and communal experience of facing a storm.  Encompassing the growing barriers, foreign meddling, attacks on LGBTQ rights, and admissions tipping points of the socio-political and environmental climate making up the ‘American’ landscape, resulting in a very literally monstrous and enthralling storm.
