Project Title: Great Walls

Proposal Summary: Great Walls documents a performance in which I walked in heels for 3 hours blindfolded with scarves a part of The Great Wall of China. My only cues were friendly voices and the music from a violin and cello to guide my steps. On the scarves were written various words representing gender obstacles I’ve often experience in my lifetime. I was symbolically facing the boundaries associated to my gender.
