  5. finally back in the studio!!! At an artist residency on Toronto Island called Luminous Bodies (http://luminousbodies.com/). It concentrates on exploring the heterogenous human body. I took some experimentation shots this morning. Exploring and researching ideas of whiteness and the erasure of identity (white washing, assimilation) in relation to my Mohawk ancestry. Using red vs. white as a contrast between these two parts of my identity as seen on the medicine wheel, where the Iroquois, Six Nations people are represented by red and the European colonials would represented by White. Coincidentally afterwards I realized the colours also reminded me of the Canadian Flag….
