Stills from Mishkan, a performance art/ritual piece about trans sanctuary. Mishkan is the biblical sanctuary that the Israelites carried through the desert. I used paper, chalk pastels, shadows, dirt, plants and plastic to create a temporary structure when I was feeling overwhelmed by casual transphobia and general isolation of school.

Left image description: a large white piece of paper with some orange scratches, crumpled and unfolded to create lines, leaf shadows on the top, against a black background.

Right image: thick orange pastel lines winding over a piece of paper that is upright on the ground, bottom section is in shadow.
