The Wet Collection - A Field Guide to Iridescence and Memory

Author(s): Joni Tevis


Using such models as Joseph Cornell's box constructions, crazy quilts, and specimen displays, Joni Tevis places fragments in relationship to each other in order to puzzle out lost histories, particularly those of women. Navigating the peril and excitement of outward journeys complicated by an inward longing for home,The Wet Collection follows Tevis through several adventures that coalesce into a narrative imbued with the light of Tevis's Southern upbringing. Written with a poet's lyricism, a scientist's precision, and a theologian's understanding of the world as it shifts around us,The Wet Collection is the exciting debut of a distinctive voice.
