Healing Vision No. I is a bedroom installation where reality and dream collide. Film, sculpture, embroidery, poetry, found objects, light and traditional block printing all intersect to create a multi-dimensional fantasy world. Born and improvised out of struggle, this piece is dedicated to sexual assault survivors. Words cover objects, objects overlap, objects cast shadow. Shadow is darkness, darkness is necessary. Darkness turns to light. Light is abstract, abundant fantasy. These things collide just as they do in the healing process. Truth is exposed, pain is real, bodies don’t look like bodies anymore. Figures, folded. Feelings, hidden. For you to find. 

Special thank you to Andrea Fischer (underwear collage artist), Cedar Marie’s sculpture class (red figures), Bre & Jessie Ferraro (installation helpers), and Amanda Bulgar (gallery director)
