2018 > Untitled Landscape (Doors of Resistance)

A door is a gateway into a new state of mind and serve as physical boundaries between physical locations. With each passage, the performance of being a person starts anew and often reflects a person’s surroundings. These doors, originally sourced from the sides of the Norfolk Southern Railway in Champaign, have been transformed from neglected and forgotten artifacts of a past life into proud and stable ephemera of perseverance through physical acts of intervention. These doors serve as an indicator of being the person we choose to be, rather than letting location dictate identity.
