Oh, the South.

There are unique qualities about every place in the world. I recently moved back to the mountains of Western North Carolina after living in New England for 20+ years. I have been keeping a list since I have arrived. The good, the strange, the unusual. The things that are thought but never said.

Oh, the South - was a piece that both honored and made visual my reflections about my new, old home.

Materials included: fake flowers, red dirt, hundreds of fresh walnuts, a book of walnut poems, Madison County Moonshine, Bojangles biscuits, cardboard signs, sharpie markers, and a bible.
