This interactive collection examines societal expectations through celebrated daily rituals.
Expectation Mourning explores societal expectations through a pop cultural journey. Highlighting everyday moments of status the viewer is asked to question if their life choices were their own. Challenging celebrated daily rituals the viewer is invited into the emotional lives of a couple behind closed doors. From the time the couple wake in the mourning to the dinner table, we share their day as they encounter moments they may not of predicted or chosen years earlier.
The piece is accompanied by an original spoken word performance by the Jay that builds an interactive experience for the viewer. On opening night the spoken word piece will be delivered live but for the viewers thereafter the spoken word is available in an extended format online to listen to while in the space. A youtube video is available for that lets you experience the poem one stanza at a time.
