Excerpts from Safe Space, 2017, HD, sound, 00:20:30 (If you would like to see the full length, please contact me)
Safe Space debuted in Berlin, Germany in SomoS's Un_Becoming.
The idea of a safe space for the marginalized has suffered misuse by groups attempting to suppress free speech and differing views. I address safe space through an escape to lush woodland at dusk; nineteenth century conservationist John Muir suggested, “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest.” Performing the yoga Plow Pose, the length of the twenty-minute video corresponds with the suggested time for meditation. Marking time, a candle inserted in my anus burns for the duration as dusk slips into night.
