Karen Ann Tierney
I recently discovered I was named after an American girl whose story had been international news when my mother was pregnant with me. Karen Ann Quinlan's ten year coma brought about new legal and medical precedents around end-of-life care that still resonate strongly today. KAQ began as an attempt to understand that time when her world stood still. Long exposure pinhole solargraphs of 2 - 12 weeks led me to a new awareness of ever-changing light and nature and into a practice of connection and collaboration across time with my namesake.
