A few years ago, Karen participated in artist Shelley Jackson’s Skin Project, a story that was “published” word by word in tattoos on the skin of volunteers.
Now, Jackson’s piecing together a reading from videos of those volunteers. It will be hosted on the Berkeley Art Museum’s website starting on March 1. In the meantime, here’s a video I took last week of Karen saying her word.
Karen will be posting her own thoughts and experiences soon. If there are any other words out there who’d like to share their stories, please get in touch!
