Skimming The Surface: Fragments of Collective Unconscious, 2013

Skimming The Surface. Inspired by trauma and emotional wounds, four women begin at what appears to be the end. The work’s action centers around a table and 24 knives engaged in precarious acts used to skim the emotional surface in an attempt to reveal a root life altering moment.
