Take Shelter

The Death of a Voice; 7 months and 9 days

It took me 7 months and 9 days to listen to the last voice mail my mother left me before her unexpected death. This self-portrait was taken after listening to the voices of my mother and friends for the first time, and is a raw documentation of my physical and emotional reaction to what I heard.
