Initiation, Incantation, Invocation

Incantation, Invocation, and Initiation are individual parts of a series work which considers the limits of optimism, self-help, and team spirit. These images were produced by making the megaphone sculptures and pom-poms, which then acted as props in performances that forced them to undergo a form of physical transformation through exposure to fire and fireworks. These performances were then documented in photography and video. When installed, the resulting photographs, videos, and sculptures function as distinct pieces and or as multiples within one installation.
