A Piece of Me….an intersection of Inspiration and Ingestion tracks Chelsie Richters’ journey through breast cancer via food, art, and roller skates.
This collaborative installation weaves a short documentary film, with an edible sculpture, performance art, and real-time video creation. A convivial multi-sensory, multi-media event. Cause if you’re going to bite off something new…bite big.
This project is now looking for sponsors to allow us to level up this project. Unforeseen costs such as 3-D printing of edible mountain molds, excessive use of tomatoes, new roller skate brakes, and the more obvious costs such as paying wonderful women who can skillfully edit and light the film, and build a set worthy of Chelsie’s vision and worthy of her story of survival.
To note, we have proactively selected an all-woman crew to keep to the ethos of 801 Creative Women; “A grassroots movement for connecting and supporting creative women in Utah.
