Release October 2021
Of the many ironies of 2020, one was the realization of how closely upheaval and transformation are intertwined with one another, how disrupted routines encourage sustained attention to concerns that have been neglected, and that there are important and often competing and even complimentary narratives that live within what we can easily see.
Burn Down Your House is a reflection on marriage within the framework of what's happening in the world—disruptions in personal and familial relationships and community, ecological and economic instability, the overdue attention to and re-envisioning of social structures, life and death.
Leveraging Madeleine L’Engle’s Two-Part Invention: the Story of a Marriage
(Crosswicks Journal Bk. 4) which centers on the highs and lows of the life L'Engle built and cherished with her husband Hugh Franklin, Burn Down Your House is a white out erasure collection that is both an example of and reflection on the ways we can make change to what exists to make something completely new.
Because two individuals joined in marriage are nothing but texts of the past
that make something old new and different.
