Discarded paper, linocut prints, embroidery thread, marker
A book that expresses the ways sexual trauma influences how one thinks about sex. Many of the prints are based on popular lesbian porn that dominates X rated sites. Porn that was not made for queer women. The images are printed on discarded paper; including mail, handmade paper, and shopping bags. The writing complicates the explicit images with my real life experiences. When combined the book becomes a knot of shame, desire, love, and disgust.
