Rites of Passage, 2022 - Ongoing
Scanned paper event passes in varying colours.
Certain festivals and cultural celebrations hold great value within religious and cultural groups. The term rite of passage is used in order to sum up the process through which individuals achieve a more respected role in life because of participation within a certain task or ritual. For those of us who aren’t tightly nit to a religious group the term takes on a much more casual meaning with respect to things like music festivals or certain other social events in which one must partake in order to feel welcomed or respected by peers. Collecting these materials allows me to keep a visual diary of moments in my own life where I have felt these emotions.
