Raising Baby X (2011-2029, when Ajax reaches age 18 and adulthood)
"Raising Baby X" is an 18-year collaborative project with my son Ajax in which I present the everyday labor of raising my child as a work of real life performance art. The long-term project encompasses the overall span of the child's life from birth through reaching adulthood. Various aspects of raising the child are taken into consideration such as food, education, clothing, the child's room, healthcare, playtime, travel, safety, discipline, entertainment, and simply loving the child. The real life performance is memorialized through works in various media including photography, painting, video, performance, sculpture, installation and mixed-media.
