Kate Stone, ‘Sam, from the series How We End’, 2016, Rubber Factory

Made in collaboration with writer, Hannah Schneider, How We End. is a body of work chronicling the romantic and sexual history of an unnamed and unreliable narrator. Each story details the moments in which the narrator realizes a relationship is over. The images are a visual representation of where that moment took place. They collage public imagery, sourced from the Internet, with private, intimate narratives to create scenes that are just as distorted and fragmented as the stories themselves. Break-ups are nothing if not one-sided, skewed. The series is about intimacy and heartbreak, but it is also about the way we communicate these things and the way truth deteriorates every time we tell a story. The relationship between the text and images is representative of the collaboration and friendship between writer and artist. There is an openness and a desire to communicate, but also a disconnect. Something is lost in translation, always.
