Artist’s Statement: In this interpretive performance I depict an individual human life. It shows a person as they grow up and learn how to exist into this world. This person gets to a point where they become a beautiful, enlightened human being that is a part of this world. Then suddenly a change in their abilities occur, starts out as little as small tasks not needed for everyday life, and can almost be ignored, but then the progression of depleted abilities is surfaced to make it hard to remember anything and eventually make it hard to walk and talk. This person uses the natural fight response, in the fight or flight response that can be argued that humans have wired into their biology, to try to push through these indescribable challenges, to only realize that it is draining their quality of life. In proof to the retention of humanness this person pleads to God in many ways to have mercy on their soul, and even with every dying breath, retaining consciousness for the majority of the time, and reaching out to another person/source to help them become what they once were; their heart still stops beating, their lungs still stop partaking oxygen, and the human that everyone once knew, is then lost.
