Silent Scream: Affect of Life in Suspension is a durational and immersive ceramics and video installation. The impending shatter of clay bodies frozen in ice, presents a sense of contingency and precariousness in viewers; the anticipation of fracture. Here the systemic failures, fragilities, and unpredictabilities of living in this historical moment is felt bone-deep before the truth of it is fully, mindfully apprehended.
