NEW WORKS

‘Healing Process’ is a minimalist and intimate series of words representing the four scientific stages of a healing wound from a perspective of collective trauma. The project was born after Nina’s reflection on the collective pain we are going through together.

Stage one is stopping the bleeding and compressing the wound, and as so many of us move through stage one together Nina reached out to folks on social media to find which word helped them to get through 2020. From the answers, she created the words used in this series.
