Piece of Mind
Fragments of memory, like dreams. Is that all that mind/self/soul is made of?
6 assemblages, with 3 of the dolls called 'Frozen Charlottes' (Thank you Elisabeth)
With old French handwriting, bones, treasures.
All in 3 of the boxes that linocutting tools came in, made into book form with leather from old jacket.
Alternating 'pages' are geometric forms - triangle, square ... up to octagon ... all pieced together from triangles.
It seems to me that memory is like this. Put together into more and more complex forms from simple elements.
