Sticks & Stones: Heart Excavation
2013,Eastern Colorado

Sticks & Stones was a project conducted in collaboration with 
The Eastern Plains Women's Resource Center in Byers, Co.

Through conducting interviews with women in Adams and Arapahoe 
counties, objects that represented the women's "best version of 
themselves" and "the version of themselves they didn't like" were 
collected, documented and detailed. The objects and documentation 
were then installed in the Resource center at a culminating community
event. This project explored issues of identity in community 
dialogue.
