YIN/YANG

In 2014, I was commissioned by Older and Reckless to create a work in collaboration with the Toronto Art School. I worked with visual artist Sacha Walter who built the skirt for this work. I had the privilege to work with Meredith Thompson who performed the work and Robbie Grunwald produced and composed the music. 

Y/Y is the concept of duality forming a whole, one cannot exist without the other. Through play and curiosity I began investigating with the idea of balance and how the balance of Yin and Yang is constantly being skewed due to outside influences. We live in a world of duality, which creates a tug of war within ourselves, perception is often deceiving and how one is perceived may not be how one actually is.
