This small series of accordion books follow the biggest Feminicide (a term used for a massacre based on sexist ideologies) in Canadian history— the one which my mother is a survivor of. The whole shooting happened in a period of twenty minutes (from 17:10 to 17:30) but the aftermath left the entire community in shock. In these books, I follow the weapon, the movement around the school, and the trauma my mother lives with as well as the intergenerational trauma that arises from it.
