Student Narrative

The topic of this artist's book is how ionizing radiation from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant explosion of 1986 affected women's reproduction. On one side of the accordion, a photo of an ultrasound becomes overcome with holes, becoming only a fraction of what it once was. On the other side of the accordion, the viewer finds those holes are forming the uranium-235 atom, which is the highly radioactive atom contained in many nuclear power plants.
