Straining Letters Into Noise


Fiona McMichael (she/her)

Why I Was A (2022)Through this object, I hoped to explore the relationship between my body and time. By drawing connections between my body as a vessel for the being, a system of neutrality is built surrounding the connection between body and mind. A vessel can be a useful tool but also one that we decorate and adorn. This complex instrument needs care and preservation in order to ensure lasting use. Placing importance on the upkeep of the body for the aid of your future self transforms the body into something of an heirloom. In a way the body is a time machine that you pass your present self to your future one everyday. Place this on a shelf but don’t forget to oil the hinges and dust the fine lines.
