My artwork, called Wargoddess: Shock&Awe, positions me as a Witness and a Scribe. I cut pictures of my family into small pieces and pasted these people I love without reservation around the goddess. I wrote and pasted words. I pasted the map of Iraq on her stomach and made Baghdad her belly button. As I worked, I wondered whose side god[dess] is on and why anyone could possibly think that s/he took sides.
