Atom-Bustin Village of the West
Through graphite drawing I map the relationship between myself and my hometown. I am interested in the history of my birthplace and the part my town has played in the production of atomic weapons. Post-Cold War the town has become the site of a giant environmental cleanup; this history was the backdrop for my youth as I grew up and created my own personal narrative under its shadow. The maps I create explore the relationship between narratives and how my personal history intertwines with the greater past of home.
