Project Description

I Do It So It Feels Like Hell is an exploration of writing, mental illness, womanhood, and the disconnect between artist and art, demonstrated through the life and works of poet and novelist Sylvia Plath. Through Plath’s undeniably personal work, the piece will question what it means to be an artist and a woman, and what it means to be as famous for your suicide as for your work.
