A search after authenticity.

The work Aurora arose from the stories of wild children (Feral children), children that spent the first few years of their life with no human contact; either raised by animals or secluded by abusive parents. While dealing with this subject, I came across the story of Genie: A child that had spent the first 13 years of her life strapped to a potty chair, locked isolated in a room by abusive parents. after her discovery in 1970 she continued to be passed on between different authorities, scientists and social workers. Her development of an alternate human physicality was a gripping matter.

People seemed to be drawn to her, also me.
This piece is dedicated to her.

GENIE.
