Julie Chen
Art Library Rare Books Collection - Folio N7433.4.C436 T78 2004 oversize

Edition of 100, Art Library has copy 80."This latest bookwork from Julie Chen is about the subtle yet powerful influence that memory has on daily life. Personal history, while seemingly rooted in fact, may contain more meaning as narrative than it does as documentation of truth. In the form of a tablet with sliding pages, True to Life offers an innovative physical structure which corresponds to the shifting nature of memory, allowing the reader to create different combinations of text and image and thus alter the content of the piece, deliberately or by chance, with each reading." — Publisher's website.
