From 2014-2016, I created a series of mixed media pieces inspired by the concept, "reDetroit" which I specifically associate with rePatching and reMapping Detroit. This performance is the first of many in what will be "Detroit rePatched" - a future arts-infused green-space and art hub located in Detroit's Brightmoor neighborhood. I begin the performance by sitting on a rocking chair that holds one of my reDetroit pieces. The piece is made up of a rusted fiberglass hand and resin-coated quilted fabric. As I repeat the phrase, "re", it comes alive through me - raking and digging the ground - "rePatching" the earth.
