"The cultural barriers that feminism must negotiate have to take place with reference to the operation of power and the persistence of vulnerability."---Judith Butler
Infinity Goddess is an ongoing project about femininity and the threat of perpetual violence which proliferates in hyper masculine cinema and gaming entertainment worlds. RESPAWN foregrounds a madonna and child relationship within the gaming environment of Halo 5. The video game footage is sourced from online gamers personal YouTube battles. Figures move through Halo 5 wearing my mother’s iconic sunflower dress from 1995. In their natural habitat, sunflowers move their blooms to face the light. To layer this reality with the archetypal first-person-shooter game, I arm the player not with a weapon, but with sunflowers following the light. The preservation of the mother figure lives on in the salt casting of my mothers sunflower dress.
