This series of artists' books were produced as an outlet to process trauma. The repetitive actions of knitting, producing the same movements over and over, provided access to a different form of reflection and healing. "This books comes in an edition of 5, with 5 pages to represent the 5 separate occasions I was raped. The individual pages are knitted from different yarns. Pages 1, 3, 5, are made from heavy, thick yarns as the rapes that occurred have left heavier imprints on my soul. The editions of books are named in sequential order by rapist. Through the process of crafting and repetition, I was able to address my traumas in a new way. The pages are blank, but my truths are woven in each stitch, truths of pain, healing, and power, saying to the world I'm going to be alright."--From the artist's statement.
