...this wary way of walking observes the subcultural practice of mudding through a simultaneous reading of social privilege and a psycho-sexual performance of (self) abjection. By appropriating tropes and methods from cinema, pop culture, and literary theory, the work aims to satirize and disorder notions of sovereignty, self-determination, and universality. 


...this wary way of walking was funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance; additional support was provided by the Core Program and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Speacial thanks to Mark Brown.
