ARMOR for FLOWERS for URGES for BEING HERE
ARMOR for FLOWERS for URGES for BEING HERE explores Ben Gould‘s processing and understanding of his recent diagnosis with Tourette’s Syndrome. Due to the circumstances of his condition and treatment, certain limits have transformed his everyday life; he cannot lift over 10 pounds, he cannot use power tools, he cannot run, and he cannot climb. His current body of work utilizes these limits as constructive tools in learning how to navigate this new and different way of living.
