Misunderstandings is about judgment. The series includes 32 pieces made with the pages and cover of a book titled The Depression Cure: The 6-Step Program to Beat Depression Without Drugs by Stephen Scott Ilardi, Ph.D. Judgment, used in reference to the cognitive faculties, is also called wisdom or discernment and is basically the evaluation of evidence to make decisions. Judgment is one of the mental faculties that affects us most individually and as a society. In turning the pages of this book into small, abstract sculptures, I wanted to demonstrate how any subject is potentially open to interpretations. I chose this book, in particular, because I’m interested in the subject of depression, a mental disorder that is still not completely understood.
