INSTALLATION & NEW GENRE > Cornerstone

A UMA student and her husband were in a severe car accident. She broke her hip and was bedridden for weeks. Because her husband was also recovering from extensive injuries, they were unable to care for their newborn child, who was temporarily cared for by extended family. Eventually their injuries healed.

She chose a graphic yet beautiful photo of her bruised hip complete with long scar and dozens of staples.

She wrote, "but the less I was able to do something the more I appreciated what I could do".
