Her Mercurial Resilience is an abstract mediation on feminine resilience and the compulsory emotional endurance of female-identifying people. Blue tulle, sweeping movement, and intimate story-telling collage together in real-time to attempt to emulate an amorphous and unnameable experience of feminine empathy and survival- and how closely they relate.

"(Her Mercurial Resilience) is a poignant piece of work that speaks to a very specific experience of being a woman. Thank you for your brilliance."
