Grip is a series of  large scale photographs made in collaboration with Math Monahan documenting a private performance meant for myself. Performance is often thought of as something that you do for an audience, for something outside of you. But sometimes there is a need to take an action and fulfill it quietly. An event is still happening, and you are your own most captive audience. 

It’s commonly assumed that when something is dead we need to cut it off.  When we sit with something, we give it space to continually expand until we have stretched it to its capacity. There at the point where it feels like there is nowhere to go, where you are drowning in it - it begins to fold in on itself, to wrinkle. Creating traction where there was none before. Allowing for a better grip on things.
