Lots of different elements were part of this month’s challenge. The color white, less rather than more, it would engage with the concept of listening, and partially be informed by a Tarot Card, The Ten of Pentacles. So what is it? This is a piece that really needs to be handled for the full experience.
- It’s paper I made from my baby diapers. I swear. That alone.
- There are 10 watermark stars in the paper.
- The text “Overreach the silence. Recognize the little that is yours,” printed in white.
- There’s a figure, also printed in white.
To me this is all about my white fragility and how I cannot let fear of making a mistake, or the shame I feel when I do prevent me from continuing to try to be an ally.
