Allison Cooke Brown is interested in investigating the territory of body and thought. Much of her work reflects her past struggles with breast cancer.
Allison Cooke Brown: "Aside from the pun of "spine" in a book format, I wanted to have my thoughts running along the surface of an interior of a torso. The book can be displayed open, 360 degrees to imitate the roundness of a body; but it also can be read as a narrative, since the writing can be read line by line, and which discusses questions of identity of who I am."
