projects > Heal Houston Ceremony

In the wake of Ike I collaborated with Houston artists in a healing ceremony based on a love letter I wrote to my hurricaned city and its harboring of Katrina victims. We used the flood waters which had spread so much destruction to dissolve the words and lave care throughout the city. A local musician's lullaby sung over the city was played while Houstonians' youtube footage of Ike flooded the ceremony space. I read the love letter line by line, dipping my hands into water and handing out each flooded page.
