UNTITLED (FATHER'S PORTRAIT OF TRANS* ONLY CHILD)

 

When I asked my father to make a portrait of me, he made by hand, a survival bracelet that is my height with two different knots intertwined.  A collaboration and conversation between my father and myself.I constructed the steel and concrete base that sits on forged anvils, one bronze, and one aluminum.
