THEADORA WALSH


hello! I am a writer and performance artist who makes work in the intersection of those fields. I’m into the physicality of language, its existence in time, and the tension between speech and its documentation. My work amplifies the subjectivity of language by creating poetic images that hinge on the edge of recognition and alienation--legibility and incomprehension. Time, memory, and the social nature of language play central roles.
