The earth holds without complaint. It holds. And as we stand on top of this soil, she holds. Take this. Take me, the weight that I carry. she holds my feet. She holds and then she allows. She infuses and then we are rejuvenated. revived.
I, We, are standing forever in youth. then free.
To the earth I give, from the earth we receive.
Oriented around the communal action of renewal, to ascend past numbness and witness birth is a guided meditation towards relinquish, and a ceremonial cleansing towards ephebism, freedom, and queering otherness.
This is the third process-memoir of eight, the practice shared is a part of a 10-part creation process towards "and to the decades of hell", a two part work documenting and questioning the development of the millennial generation and its metamorphosis into post-contemporary ideas.
This work was made in residence during the NYU Summer Residency 2018!
