Stripping shows the act of how the loss of life felt. How it felt like my heart was pulled out and left me to cope. How healing resulted in my world being stripped and malnourished of living.
After years of battling and struggling, my trauma has not only affected me mentally but it has also affected my physically. The hearts to display the different ways trauma has affected me. Clay was chosen because of the process of firing, because refinement forms strength through the fire. The actions seen within the video display how the trauma felt and took place. The reenactment of my hurt and the creation of these piece have not only help heal me, but they have also helped me move forward.
