Brianna shares: “procedural memory has a way of connecting the body to the unconscious mind. My practice commits to trusting the body and responding to its needs in order to realize the needs of the whole self. I employ the immediacy and malleability of charcoal, performance, and video to express, capture and translate this alternative thought process. Combining this intuitive trajectory with an open, responsive mindset, my train of thought while making is a heavily layered negotiation between myself, the work, and the environment. the results of this layering are hybrid creations. My own diverse ethnicity has played a significant role in questioning normative categorizations that hybridity does not conform to. Through various composites of media and content, I explore hybridity as a source of potential for new discoveries and expanded perception”
