Hi friends!

I created a new type of performance over the past couple months and I wanted to share my notes from the first outing. Here it is, rough, and hand-drawn...

Stitched Deaths: Sadako Sasaki

(d. Oct. 25, 1955)

Left behind on a bench at Hasbro Children's Hospital, Providence, RI.

Quote is a Basho haiku:
A caterpillar
this deep in fall --
still not a butterfly

Stitched Deaths: Ricky Wilson/Matthew Shepard

(d. Oct. 12, 1985/98)

Left behind in the bushes near the I-95 highway on-ramp, Allens Ave, Providence.
(in tribute to Roy Weber)

Quote is from the film, Philadelphia.
It's the translation of the Umberto Giordano aria "Andrea Chenier"
"Live still, I am life. I am divine. I am oblivion. I am the god that comes from the heavens and makes of the earth a heaven. I am love! I am love."

Stitched Deaths: Edgar Allan Poe

(d. Oct. 7, 1849)

Left behind at the fountain in front of the Providence Athenaeum.

Quote is his last. In a delirious state, Poe called out the name, "Reynolds!" over and over again while held in a prison-like hospital. A man of words, he was reduced to near incomprehension in his last days.
