My work spirals around the spiritual, social, and material complications within trans embodiment. Cruising across material and motifs, I bring big color and fluid movement to build towards heterotopic worldmaking. Formal and material explorations live somewhere between a poetic and functional stab at alternate futurity. By creating rifts and variations patterns, I can begin to engage an infinite potential of pasts and futures.

I plan to use my time at Recology as an exploration of the connection to recycling and the repeating pattern: an image/object that carries the past, holds space for variations, and proposes new possible futures. A reconfiguration of the same image morphing the reality of our perceptual and physical body. Desire for a more welcoming possible future living in the next variation of a repeat.

Leonard is a graduate student at San Francisco State University.
