Holes of Truth (2008)
Holes of  Truth

The installation, Holes of Truth, was inspired by a 19th-century copy of Plutarch’s Lives given to me by a family member. After reading it, I began visualizing those individuals who impacted my life as chapters in a book; as paintings, row upon row, in a history museum; and ultimately, as planets in the sky, connected randomly as constellations are. Once in progress, I realized that Holes of Truth was less about hard truths than fluidity—history slipping and sliding off the page, images melting and solidifying—the incessant, glorious flow of the universe pausing for a reflective moment, then moving on.
