The SHE WORLD ARCHIVE – relics, ephemera and detritus of lost and then found objects from the lives of women – is a source I use for close observation of the energy held in personal residue. Collected and cataloged over many years the archive is a mystery of feminine objects (almost body parts) that hint at the Life of a woman. My interest in the tactility and texture of film, historic photographic methods – cyanotype, instant film , super 8 and 16mm film, and most recently overhead projection offers a variety of methods for honoring the memory, magic and identity of everyday women.
