“leaky rad 2”
is a video featuring the artist in her studio. Its inspiration is duality; researching design principles, a snake thematic, body movement and negative space. Unfolding in this video is the internal happenings for the artist during the first covid-19 lockdown.

This video premiered in June 2020 at Drawing Us In II: A Virtual Artist Residency, organized by the Bakehouse Art Complex in Miami, Florida in collaboration with L’AiR Arts International Residency in Paris, France

leaky rad 2is a multi-form performance and installation. It is a body of work exploring duality, researching body movement, the snake, negative space and design principles. My research juxtaposes the multilateral structure of physical movement with perceived contortions of snakes. The result is a multi-faceted installation exploring and subverting a historical human verses snake relationship.
