Artwork > The Things We'll Carry

The Things We'll Carry is an ongoing series that addresses fossilization, memorialization, and post-apocalyptic tropes in order to summon the radical transformation that can emerge after chaos and destruction. Reimagining an alternate future that is queer and ecotopic, I explore the need to identify objects and ideas that will survive the shift and transcend extinction. The title I use to frame this series is a change in grammatical tense of Tim O'Brien's book, The Things They Carried.
