'Amnesia' detail - art by Lisa Kokin; this work is "Fauxliage" – fake leaves made from BOOK PAGES that have been SEWN to resemble Fall leaves; the artist chose the gingko leaf for the plant's use to improve memory and Rachel Carson's book Silent Spring as a metaphor that 'historical amnesia allows the repetition of past mistakes...'
