This Innocent Country is a print series told in chapters that deeply consider the mythic nature of American history.
The first several chapters are dedicated to: making visible, the hidden, architecture, structure and systems of inequality by investigating how infrastructure, urban planning, designed utopia, institutions and revised history’s are used to include or exclude certain people, and how those decisions continue to echo, ripple and repeat.
For the last few years I have been unweaving the American flag string by string. As the growing social, political and economic polarization has unfolded – culminating in the recent election – it is unclear to me whether we are coming apart or coming together. These pieces reflect the state of the union, and attempt to unweave national myths, ideologies and perceptions.
