Tales from the Dinner Table

Fragments of memory in desiccated words.

A locked storefront window space becomes an observation deck for recorded stories of nurture mixed with threads of family or societal abuse or control. The stories are pinned up like ransom notes or gathered into text books altered by a skin of thick, dried milk until only small fragments of undigested hurt are left to be read. They are pointedly locked away behind closed doors, visible but as dried remnants of memory, no longer open to human touch.
