The Firecracker Foundation: Soulfire

Soulfire is a community awareness project that shares the diversity of survivor experiences through artistic expression. Local area artists are paired with sexual assault survivors and together they create a work of art that represents the survivor's healing. They have six months to complete the process. Each year the artworks are auctioned off at a fundraising gala event. In 2017, I created a self-portrait piece about my own healing and in 2018 and 2019, I worked with survivors from the community. In 2020, I was on the Soulfire Planning Board, though there has not been another traditional gala event since the pandemic.

Digital Photograph

For this piece, I photographed Laura in a sunflower field to create the mural seen behind her. I installed the mural, then photographed Laura again, in juxtaposition.
