“Vestigial Names” – digital mixed media on archival inkjet, 17 x 21.25 in.

Feels like the germ of this is so far from where it ended up. I kept pulling at the knot of memorializing names in public-facing works and infrastructure, etc. It has spun so much energy these past few years, especially in the South with their grisly monuments, a place where the public names are also full of “chestnut”. In my science fiction writing I talk about humans as makers of meaning, but it’s funny how time alone can change a meaning, too.
