Suppressed Images

In 2015, Chelsea Manning and I collaborated on an artwork titled Radical Love in which I created portraits based on DNA extracted from her hair clippings and cheek swabs.

Suppressed Images is a graphic short story we wrote together illustrating how this collaboration took place and imagining what future might unfold.

The story was published the morning before Chelsea’s commutation w as announced, and we are delighted that the future we envisioned finally came true with her release on May 17, 2017.

Published in the New Inquiry Magazine. Covered in Paper Magazine, Art Slant and the Creators Project.
