Digital Collage Series Inkjet Prints
Over the past few years, and intensely, emphatically so in the past months since George Floyd’s murder I have been feeling paralyzed spiritually, unable to mourn this loss in the ways I was raised with knowing since we are distant from each other, in far more ways than just physically. Almost all these rituals must be done with ten people, sometimes I feel like I have many more than that mourning with me, sometimes a lot less.
Most traditions which I can do myself have to do with light. For the first time in almost a decade I light a y’artziet candle, not unlike many mourning traditions in various communities and cultures. A small, white, lit candle which signals the household is mourning is put in the window, half question half declaration.
