Installation shots

This installation was created as a part of Over The Rainbow: A Chakra House (as a benefit for the Give Love project, by Sojourner Wright). I co-designed and fabricated the participatory altar, which was inspired by the folk-charm tradition of milagros. Audience members created and changed the installation as they left their personal milagros behind. I hand-dyed fabric strip “waterfall” as a purification between the quiet altar space and larger installation. The rock and water video and sound that falls over the large wall was taken at Howard Street beach. The entire space was created to offer participants an experience of moving between the seven chakras, with opportunities to heal around every corner.
