NOTE: This is the SOFTCOVER version of the book. Narratives are an important and necessary part of individual and social constructs. They explain things that are out of human control or beyond... More > understanding. They act as a way to grapple with the world of non-stop technological development, global climate change, hyperactive news media, and the omnipresent consumer culture.

This series of drawings focuses on narrative as a means of controlling one’s understanding of self, others, and events that may or may not be based in reality.

While it has specific personal meaning and a dry sense of humor from my point of view, I invite participants to invent their own explanations of what the narrative means.< Less
