All the Tears, 2017
Secret Garden Art Fair
Fort Tilden, Brooklyn, NY
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes
My first seaside performance: I rest on all fours alternately heaving/hyperventilating and immersing my head in a bucket of water, holding my breath for as long as possible.
The manipulation of my breath leads to a trance state in which I make myself at 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.
