Kelly Green

The Kelly Green Project was a performance that started as i was leaving Cincinnati, Ohio, and lasted the first 10 months of my life in Mexico City. To start the project, I documented myself dancing in each piece of my wardrobe and then gave all except the green articles away at my MFA thesis exhibition. Wearing only one color was a way to minimize my belongings, lightening the load of moving from one country to another. I selected the color green because the color "kelly green" already exists in the English language. It was a playful way to introduce myself to a new set of friends and culture. In Mexico City, the only other people I ever saw wearing all green were Christmas elves and middle-aged office-working women.
