Cycles: Women's Health Project
Cycles is an arts and social justice project addressing women’s health issues in neighborhoods in East Baltimore. I collaborate with women and girls to create an illustrated resource book about women’s health topics. After creating the book, female participants will distribute the book to their community members and host their own visual storytelling workshops.
The large graffiti drawings document my memories and discoveries about my body through my own experiences and stories told to me by other women. I use drawing to vent about the western medical system and reveal alternative options to women’s health issues.
The interactive bathroom installations are a part of my research for the Cycles book project to gather additional stories and concerns to address in the book. I initiate the conversation with a drawing and written prompt. Viewers are asked to contribute anonymously when visiting the public restrooms.
