Bonding 'n' Binding Sessions Continued - Evolutions

Zena, Cherrelle and Katie
So we have been a-binding at Kings College as part of the Urban Dialogues Art installation commission we won from 3 Faiths forum. Some lovely little creations have been coming forth as we talk and connect about out experiences of anger as women.
The plan is to make an installation of an impression of a tree made from fabric and thread that houses  The Transforming Fury Jukebox loaded with 101 stories of people talking about their relationship with and perceptions of anger.  Right now, we are at the vine making stage.

What's been amazing about this work (fun) is  the confirmation that the installation is not about the tree and the vines intend to build as the finished piece; the installation IS the process, the act of making and sharing  these moments.


We've had open sessions for others to come and join us. Andrea came and did some binding while sharing a story about her disabled sister, who suffers from sickle cell  anemia being discriminated against and talked badly of at a concert. Because her sisters disablity is not obvious - in a wheelchair, with a white cane - people often disbelieve her when in public spaces. Andrea feels to defend her sister and learns a lesson from her anger on this...

Seeding Red

"Recognising the anger trying not to see red and disappear
or end up with time lost
to the Bermuda triangle of troubled,
strangulated till I black out:
the  hurricane walks." Anger is a symptom for something being very wrong. It is your body telling you a perceived injustice has been done. It is a red flag to wake up, be aware, stay alert. That alerting might be to watch your back, be good to yourself, protect yourself, do not leave yourself vulnerable: "there are trip wires everywhere".

TRANSFORMING ANGER JUKEBOX ON TUMBLR

TheTransforming Fury Jukebox holds 101 stories of peoples journey through anger. There are many stories about transformation, about relationships, personal and collective revolution through staying the thick of an angry moment and coming out the other side.
It is a physical jukebox that has become part of an art installation after The Fury Team constructed after applied to King's College and The Three Faiths Forum Urban Dialogues commissioncall out. More details of that coming soon.

But the Jukebox is also online.Check out The Fury Project Tumblr

Listening to the global experiences of women's anger helps others better understand perceptions of anger in general. When gender, race and cultural  stereotypes are considered, anger and conflict take on a different dynamic.

SUBMISSIONS FOR ANGER STORIES ARE STILL MORE THAN WELCOME.

We will be moving about the city collecting these stories, so keep an eye out for us. Be prepared to fill us in and share with others how you overcame you …
