This is a charcoal drawing in stop-motion animation--a technique pirated from William Kentridge--I made to accompany a poem I wrote. In it, my mother and four of her five sisters gather for a photograph in our back yard at a family reunion in the summer of 1957. Sooner or later each of the sisters, and my mother, developed Alzheimer's Disease; they walk out of the picture in the same order as that in which they departed what we think of as reality.
