:: Metal Lungs ::
Digital collage and writing on archival paper, plywood. 2011. This artist book begins with a diagram of the lungs, which open to reveal corresponding images and text. Using anatomy as an entry point, a narrative unfolds about the silent body of the "daughter", dutiful but devastated in the context of cultural obedience. The lungs, as the origin of voice and breath, become the landscape of suppressed histories, longing for shift.
