Composed of blown out eggshells and padded white vinyl, "Diffuse" documents my feet as I walk on 6 crates of eggshells until all of the eggshells are broken. I am wearing the brand I Love Comfort™ shoes for this video.
In an effort to avoid confrontation Diffuse is literally about the feeling and ultimate liberation of "walking on eggshells". This piece reflects the anxiety that accompanies the desire not to upset or provoke unwanted behavior in another individual. Making the piece was an anxious effort in itself. It took months of preparation to prepare the blown-out eggs and to create the set that the video was shot in. The action was documented in one continuous recording.
