"When I touch you, I feel your breath."
"Enacting Parts" is a project through which I grapple with the embodiment of throwaway objects as active agents within our domestic and natural spaces, but also within our bodies, our memories, and all non-physical parts of our being. This work intends to engage in dialogue with a broken object in order to trouble and make visible some intricacies of late capitalism and anthropocentrism in a time of reemergence. The text printed across the surface of this piece records the artist's experience seeing, touching, smelling, and listening to this object.
