A series of improvisational works across discipline (video, live performance, photography, sculpture) that destroy the clothes in which they are performed. The series considers the intimacy and power of the hand-me-down and the heirloom and their connections to acts of passing, passing down and passing on. Disintegration Series honors the past by reanimating its relics, celebrates the present through acts of joyous destruction, and looks to the future through an ongoing project of transformation in which letting go of an object (perhaps even a beloved one) comes from the vivid power of the present, dancing body.
Disintegration (1) is an ongoing video series.

Disintegration (2) was a live performance at Catharine Clark Gallery in conversation with artist Kambui Olujimi’s sculpture Just Because We’re Magic Doesn’t Mean We Aren’t Real, in his show What Endures, which investigated the gesture of dance as a symbol of persistence and resilience amidst the economic downturn and global social upheaval.
