Scaffold: Equity of Treatment

2020 - ongoing


Scaffold: Equity of Treatment is about the encouragement of self reflection and preservation and how these very important practices need to be supported by equitable treatment in our homes, communities and world. The use of the scaffolding is to symbolize the individual care and support we all need. My goal is to encourage discussions on self reflection, self-love and practice in deciphering what we need as individuals and ways our systems of support can better meet these needs. 


I see the scaffold project as a kind of visual spiritual alchemy that challenges the viewer and subject to see themselves as a universally whole being made up of a formula of experience and understanding. When we know who we are we can clearly vocalize what we need of the world, which can bring satisfaction and harmony to ourselves and others.
