All the Tears, 2017

Secret Garden Art Fair
Fort Tilden, Brooklyn
1 hour 15 minutes

The manipulation of my breath leads to a trance state in which I make myself one with the ocean. I listen to the birds and waves, the people around me, and I allow myself to surrender to this altered state of consciousness. 

I carry two large containers of water to a bucket. I slowly combine their contents in the bucket and proceed to I alternately hyperventilate and hold my breath with my head submerged in a bucket of water for as long as possible.
