Deliberate Knowledge

This interactive installation examines how a primary source of our cultural knowledge--books--often work to uphold grand narratives that perpetuate incomplete and misguided histories. 

In order to do this, I deconstructed a number of books and through an ink transfer process, printed alternative resources on the inside covers of these books. I then placed the books in a public setting to encourage people to pause and consider this perspective.
