Part of The Comfort House Project: Stay as long as you like

This linocut reduction print for Makda is all about perspective. 

During my conversation/interview with her at the same local coffee shop where I met both Matthew and Sofia, we talked about small moments in the face of cosmic events. We talked about the heaviness of ongoing apocalypse. We talked about how community achievements feel like personal ones. We talked about hyper independence and giving yourself permission to be soft. Makda reminisced about stargazing with her cousins. She shared the joy of anticipating the versions of yourself that could be, not what you could do. 

In the space I created for her, Makda and her cousins sit/lay in a room carpeted with grass, and enclosed in transparent walls that allow them to watch the night sky. The balance between a sparkly, unreachable universe and quiet moments with people you don't have to explain yourself to is the whole point. 

Makda's own poetry graces the crown molding. It says:

this world loves us like a bruise

prods us tender, weary

what we suspend between us, sustains
