I did this performance time-based piece I did for Daniel Everett's New Genre class last semester. It has some obvious visual links to some installations I did for the same class. The title "Being birthed" came after I had done the video and watched myself being ejected from the protective cocoon. There is a duality that comes from being wrapped up- I feel both stifled and safe. Once I am ejected, I feel liberated and vulnerable. I like that there are 2 complimentary emotions in the before state (being wrapped up), and 2 emotions in the after state (being ejected), which makes 4. And I like the number 4 because it is a strong number.
