"Erbody Get's Down Baby Just Don't Wallow."

"Erbody Gets down Baby Just Don's Wallow" is a participatory installation made of 23 light bulbs with quotes of adversity written on them. There are also 3 bluetooth lamps that will change color to suit the viewers desire. The light bulbs will be suspended in the air with white fabric surrounding it creating a faux room, with quotes of adversity projected on the fabric walls. I made this piece with the intention of disrupting societies current narrative of disassociation in order to bring communities together. I wish to convey that everyone inevitably experiences adversity. However, these hardships have the ability to strengthen society as a whole if we band together in order to overcome them. My hope is that this installation will be therapeutic for the audience that participates in it. Participants will write their own stories of adversity on the bulbs and light the cube with a color associated with that memory.
