For this project, I make biographical works art using anthropological research methods. Each piece focuses on important issues or events in the life of my interlocutor. I record life histories and do participant observation- a process that anthropologist Clifford Geertz aptly called "deep hanging out." I get to know the places and people in the life of the person for whom I make the art. She participates in selecting the media, color or the dimensions of the work and at the end pf our work together, she receives the product of the exchanges.
Working with Juliann led me to extend my work on femininity in relation to body image, hair and beauty, a subject I have also studied in fieldwork in Morocco, Egypt and France.
