Visual Interlude!

After posting more “academic” or learning oriented pieces lately, I decide to change it up! What follows is a work in progress, a Series entitled The Body is not an Apology borrowed from Sonya Renee Taylor’s book of the same name. I was struck by this phrase, because I have apologized for my body all my life and in myriad ways, but not until I became bewildered and sometimes bedridden by phenomenal fatigue and severe pain did I realize this. My first apologies in the Great White North were for the color of my skin, then my gender, then my sexuality, and finally, disablement. There was always something “wrong” that had to be addressed in order to “belong”… This experience is probably not confined to me…this Series is an attempt to speak to that sense of injustice visually.
