'Amnesia' detail - art by Lisa Kokin; this work is "Fauxliage" – fake leaves made from BOOK PAGES that have been SEWN to resemble Fall leaves; the artist chose the gingko leaf for the plant's use to improve memory and Rachel Carson's book Silent Spring as a metaphor that 'historical amnesia allows the repetition of past mistakes...'

Lisa Kokin | Buckaroo (detail) thread, book pages from Silent Spring, wire, 20 x 32 x 7 inches, 2011 - incorporates text from Lost River Buckaroos, a cowboy novel from the 1930s. The fragile ephemerality of the leaves stands in sharp contrast to the violence contained in the text.
