A culmination of study into how motherhood is identified and manipulated in media.
is an archival collection of essays, poems, and photographs, bound as an experiential art object. This non-traditional book is packaged to create a sense of discomfort and uneasiness through careful material choice.
Each reader must break open the book’s “gestational” pouch, creating a visceral entrance into the deeply personal topics of childbirth, body image, aging, and death. The reader is always aware of the tactile experience of holding this book, viewing all texts and images through this filter.
