Elsi Vassdal Ellis – Relative Navigations

Artist Statement

I view families in the quantum sense, collaborative quantum entanglements in the multiverse of time and distance. Immediate and extended families are collaborative efforts, some active, some passive, some positive, some negative. The stories in this collection all have truths but they may be combinations within and across the mergers of DNA and/or marriages. In these truthful-ish stories, some with embellishments to fill in the forgotten or withheld details, the names of the actors have been changed to maintain their anonymity and diminish the possibility of family feuding. Some of these stories might be your own.
