I am so excited for this amazing opportunity! Myself along with 9 other creatives will be featured in the summer edition of Where Women Create. Creator/Editor-in-Chief Jo Packham and Celeste Shaw had a vision and invited us along. I must say I extremely honored to share this space with so many amazing humans!

This installation is the work of Asia Porter, Roin Morigeau and Shantell Jackson. These artists make up the portal collective. In this installation they took their ink line work and scaled it to make a site specific installation.
The Photography was captured by Cami Bradley Photography.
In "il·lu·mi·na·tion", PORTAL COLLECTIVE invites the viewer to step into a highly immersive site-specific installation. Using interactive projections and audio recordings, Shantell Jackson, Roin Morigeau, and Asia Porter have rendered their individual pen + ink work into imagined digital topographies. It is largely taken for granted how entrenched white hetero-patriarchy has become in our day-to-day lives. From the clothes we wear, the sidewalks we walk down, to the very buildings we inhabit. PORTAL’s "il·lu·mi·na·tion" answers the question, “What else?”. Wielding poetry, visual art, digital design, and contemporary storytelling methods as tools, we are not dismantling the master's house, we are building a home of our own. PORTAL is the antidote to creative isolation. "Il·lu·mi·na·tion" is the threshold.
