In 2007 in order to push my boundaries as an artist, I did a "life as art" project called Year in Rainbow, where I'd wear one color every day for a month and rainbow on the alternate months, expoloring the 6 color rainbow. I documented my experiences living in color on a blog and did live shows for the color months.
Summer of 2020 I was missing live performance and needed an artistic practice to keep up my spirits, so I brought back Year in Rainbow. I did the same daily colors and the same blog, but instead of live performances I made experimental videos. Below is a reel of my work from 2020-2021.
