Traumatic events in 2008 and 2015 forced a new vernacular - a different way to understand myself and to be understood.

Materials include native grasses, baling wire, found objects and 1960's-era Treasure Chest, a Catholic-oriented comic book. Bison skulls are sourced from Wisconsin and South Dakota meat herds.
