Lise is still researching connections between our health and the environment for an ongoing body of bookworks. She has prepared a questionnaire for people whose health has been compromised by toxins in their environment, be it air, water, food, work or familial relationships. If you or anyone you know has had experiences relevant to the nature of this research, please download a copy of the questionnaire (in .pdf format).


Diffuse Axonal Injury: April 14, 2008
This is the first work I've made dealing with my son's brain injury, caused by an encounter with a large rock cut. It's a cast paper brain with threads representing his neural connections, many of which are broken.

My (Discouragingly) White Life
A Call for Entry from the 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland got me thinking about the cultural make-up of my historically white community, and hence my own life. Reading about the Race Game posited by an American theologian named Thandeka in her book, "Learning to be White: Money, Race and God in America" gave me the idea for this flag book.
