Stop.Drop.Roll is a triptych that seeks to address the human experience when altered by the hands of others, and references the social safety mechanisms we use to ensure our personal welfare. Often learned in childhood, we memorize a set of cultural and social cues that promise success. Yet, despite daily, devotional practice of them, they fail us. The title of this work cites a device of fire safety to self-extinguish when the body is in flames, while connoting a necessary and urgent change of course through a series of abrupt actions.
