Based on a confession booth, ‘Burn a Jelus Tho’t’ is collapsable and an intimate interactive installation explorating the theme of jealousy and envy.

Measuring 4’ x 4’ x7’ high, it gives the participant a private and safe space to contemplate psychological, physical and emotional aspects of an understudied human characteristic. The exterior is covered by quotes, explanations, with porcelain elements.

By taking a scroll, focusing on a jealous thought and burning it, it aims to be a thought provoking, symbolic, proactive statement.
The 'altar' is all made of porcelain.

No longer young, pretty and pert
drooping, inflating, unravelling
in places I never knew existed
feeling feelings I never felt before
I was becoming old and invisible
jealous of all the beautiful youth
that crossed my path
I saw the lust in his eyes…

What is making me jealous?
What am I afraid of losing?
What am I trying to keep?
Why do I feel so threatened?
I asked myself.

It triggered a journey in facing my insecurities, old age and death.

I learnt to embrace all my sagging nooks and crannies and losing the fear.

And I began to understand the complexities of human nature…

‘Burn a Jelus Tho’t’ was born.
