hi i.n.-
thanks alot for reaching out and saying that nice thing you said.
your work is real interesting, i'm guessing you do not have kids, correct? can i ask why you relate to this project? i'm trying to figure out whom it speaks to and why, and i tend to assume the peoeple who like it have kids and are caught up in the being a parent situation i am in. sorry to use you as a test subject, but you looked like a good one. lemme know if you care to and thanks again for sharing your sentiments.

oh by all means...i guess for me it's not a matter of relating. because i can't, i don't have kids. for me, it's the juxtaposition of the image with the me the scans are artifacts, scientific evidence, data. the images are taken out of a larger context..side by side then seem to relate to, and support each other. like i said, i don't have kids yet, but i can appreciate the curiosity regarding the brain/life of a child. maybe one day when i have kids i can look back on this series and it'll take on a different taste, but until then i like that it's a window i can look in to....i hope that makes sense. i know how it makes me feel, i might have done a poor job of explaining it.
