I am informed by the beautiful as well as the terrifying, the respiration and metabolism of the natural environment, the quiet microcosms of ferns, moss, mold and dead things that become the soil. Even concrete structures and steel like collective memories of our cultures and histories crumble because of these processes, with us living and tumbling with the pieces. I want to question the validity of the storyteller of history and the origins of the parts of it. I want to deconstruct and then build my own myths of genetic families and generational sins.
