AIRING MY DIRTY LAUNDRY AT THE NYC POETRY FESTIVAL
“Airing my Dirty Laundry” is a site-specific public installation made for the 2021 NYC Poetry Festival on Governors Island. The installation expands upon a previous project, in which I first began incorporating poetry into my work by embroidering one line from a poem onto a towel that I hand-dyed naturally. The installation includes this original towel and other garments all hand-dyed with natural materials and embroidered with single lines from longer poems that I wrote, which I am not yet ready to share. I aim to "Air my Dirty Laundry," though under the guise of literary concealment. While an attempt to express all that I can without crossing my own boundaries, the gaps in information also hint at our inability to fully comprehend situations involving others with their own truths.
