Widowsweave is an awareness raising series of performances highlighting the conditions of Iraqi Widows who often struggle to acquire even basic necessities such as clean water or adequate shelter. Through artistic durational activities the artist and public participants mark 3,000,000 lines representing the number of Iraqi widows from 30 years of war, tyranny and sanctions.

25 Year Anniversary

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the beginning of the Gulf War (bombing in Operation Desert Storm) and the fascinating video-game-like coverage that was as enthralling as it was sanitized. I will try to post something here or on Facebook or other social media from my artistic journey since that time relating to the war, the Iraqi people, widows and by extension all war and its impact, as well as the healing effect of art as response.
