It’s been 6 days since I got my botox injections, and I’m finally feeling a little better!
I’ve been having a lot of pain and soreness in my upper back / neck area, as well as in my eye muscles? (weird, but apparently common side effect)
I had a therapeutic massage today though and while that was no fun I do feel better now! And I called my neurologist and she prescribed me some muscle relaxants so hopefully that will help too without making me overly sleepy. My forehead doesn’t wrinkle up anymore hahaha. Super strange. But I can still move my eyebrows so that is good.
I’m super optimistic that things will keep improving!! I really hope that this is going to work out for me :)
This body of work is an exploration of the extent of cultural appropriation and encourages a discussion about it. I give the appropriator and the appropriated the opportunity to defend themselves and create a dialogue between them, while maintaining a neutral stance myself. I am not attacking those who appropriate, merely educating and creating awareness. I’m also exploring appropriation myself, and discovering the carying degrees of it within this visual conversation.
I’d like to make this a long term exploration, with a lot more participants as a form of generation-wide debate. If you’d like to be photographed to add your point of view, please do not hesitate to pop me a message here or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we could work something out!
these are all great except for the turban one, people have been wearing turbans without religious context for hundreds of years. noblemen and painters, and even peasants in western culture have been wearing them for years purely as an accessorie.
saw some baby ducks and their mama today in the park it was super cute
