In life we walk through the world with the constant chatter of two voices. There is one that tries to make the decisions in life that are needed and the other that constantly tries to leave us defeated. Some people have a hard time getting past themselves and the negativity holding them down. This particular installation is literally “Getting Up” from for the floor and rising through the chatter. Arriving to a metaphorically standing point of strength with the drive to liberate themselves everyday. Leaving ourselves with a deeper unstanding of why and what the world around us is.

Get Up was performed at Cedars Open Studios on November 21st, 2015.
