Red Zone- Elsewhere Artist in Residence
Red Zone, or Red Crypsis, ongoing
Safety is arbitrary right now as we are navigating a city (and country) where there is no agreed upon standard to stay safe, let alone agreed upon threat to that safety. Red is a color associated with risk taking, it is the color used on maps to mark where COVID cases are surging. The color of greatest danger. For my current pod family, the Shelter Elsewhere Fellows (Kinari Council, Christian Lee, Thea Cohen, Avery Rose) Red Crypsis provides bold camouflage to create a sense of shelter and familiarity within the danger. We are camouflaged in this red haven of both vibrance and invisibility. Hiding in plain sight, each moving portrait is unique to the person. Each red environment, a new configuration of objects, a labor of love and an offering to them, an act of care to help them find comfort in the Red Zone.
