A Voyage of Discovery
Dear Philip E. Agre
Captain Tweet
I Was 28 in 1923
Someone's Always Missing Somewhere
Of Course I Dreamed About You
The Distance in Between

Someone's Always Missing Somewhere describes the remains of intimate relationships, juxtaposed by photos of empty bed sheets. The work departs from the idea that each experience we have with another human being is documented on a physical map that we carry around within our bodies. The map expands and contracts over time, depending on how much space a person takes up, altering our memories and the physical presence of the relationship.

The work was created as a series of prints for 321 Colton School, a satellite exhibition of the controversial New Orleans Biennial in 2008, three years after Hurricane Katrina left her destructive trail. While artists were flown in from all over the world in an effort to put NOLA back on the cultural map, entire neighborhoods were still waiting to be redeveloped, waiting for missing loved ones to return. The series was later included in Clamoring to Become Visible at the Brooklyn Arts Council Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, 2009; and published in Nyx, a Noctournal, Goldsmiths University London, 2013.
