Construct Series

If you could write a letter to Time, what would you say? To Womanhood? To Death? Each sculpture is accompanied by a poem written as a letter from Tyra to personified versions of these constructs. Dive into her mind during the creation of this series and contemplate a few of these questions yourself.

dear soul

when it is time 

where do you go?

is it everything

you want?

or, maybe, everything

you fear?

did you

love someone?

will anyone

miss you?

are you

ready?

 

love,

tyra j

dear time

does it hurt when i 

don’t appreciate you?

remember when you are good to me

less than when you let me down?

try to, despite your cries

manipulate you?

always want you

to give me more?

 

love,

tyra j

Time
Womanhood

dear womanhood

who are you?

must i suffer to 

experience you?

why does no one

understand you?

are you tired of

explaining?

justifying?

fighting?

hiding?

 

love,

tyra j

dear mind

i wonder if

you ignore

expectations

structure

emotion.

will you still

exist?

 

love,

tyra j
