In this performance, I walked from my studio at the University of Pennsylvania to my class on sheets of paper. The paper contained all the language visible on objects in my studio. These objects—flyers, books, dvds, pill bottles, etc.— have been curated by me to create a safe environment that helps me both work and battle my severe anxiety.
Though I normally rely on sunglasses and headphones to aid me when I’m out in the world, that day the paper was my security blanket.
I was also sending selfies to my professor, Kenneth Goldsmith and documenting the paper trail I left behind.
