Let’s get white girl wasted and burn bridges

The phrase “Let’s get white girl wasted and burn bridges”, herein is interpreted as a commentary on social gender stereotypes. The act of getting “wasted” to the point of reckless abandon has the potential to provoke a primal instinct in people despite their gender. This can result in the termination of friendships and relationships (burning bridges). This multimedia installation serves to explore a tangled web of thoughts, strung out in an attempt to find clarity and resolve. The walls were crudely painted, the floor covered in a flat layer of gravel. The figures are placed on display purposefully with a lack of dialogue, separated by different bases or material such as wool or feathers, existing as individual thoughts. It is a storage space, a sketchbook of sorts, an attempt to sort through a mass of thoughts, memories and intuitions to their core. A constant search for clarity.
