Labor, Cast Iron, 2023
Work in progress, Cast Iron, Fall 2023. This Spring I will be making a series of sculptures combining cast metals and sewn workwear surfaces. The slogans and texts in this piece are all drawn from official labor rights signage, labor law posters, court cases and studies on labor law violations, labor protest picket signs, and handwritten historical letters responding to labor protests in the United States.

Video diary _ Rote Flora, 21 November 2023
It was in Sesimbra, Portugal, October 7, 2023. I was there in Portugal presenting a movie about Syria before war, and it seemed a little paradise away from it all. I read about the tragedy happening in this moment in Israël a few minutes later, after shooting the pictures of this wonderland. These images will always have a very special taste for me. I look at them as a unreal slideshow, a suspended moment, before the announcement of a disaster for our humanity. A few minutes later, I saw this man running alone, as if he was running away, or running for help, was he a survivor? I thought we were all survivors.
