Out of the Ashes

Out of the Ashes copy

“Out of the Ashes” is loosely based on AWAKE lesson 2’s video “To the Edge” by Anja De Dobbelaere. As most of you know I lost my home including most of my photographs, paintings, journals, etc in the CA wildfires in October. From the photos I had on my iPhone, I used a photo from my trip to Italy, an image taken at the Oscar de la Renta show in San Francisco, and even a photo of the fire debris of what was left of my home. Thus the quote by Hiba Fatima Ahmad, “How can you rise, if you have not burned?” I also used some AWAKE content from Jen Maddocks. I like to think of the mannequin as rising out of the ashes to new possibilities.
