In Juliana Coles online workshop Book of the Night we were tasked to create a spread about a body scar. My piece Memory Wall commemorates an experience I had when I was a little boy. I was playing with a new toy airplane when I "flew" it into my head. The gash with blood flowing everywhere was enough of a concern that I was bundled into the car and taken to the hospital where I received several stitches.
We all have memories, some not forgotten and others lost to us at the moment. Occasionally forgotten ones seep through the memory wall and we relive an experience from long ago.
