bone, mauve, and eggshell blue is a memoir and a form of commemoration to the history of my female Armenian ancestors. The work cites cultural imagery and traditions as an embodied succession of impressions and iconographies. Utilizing family photos, heirlooms, and field recordings from a research trip to Yerevan, Armenia, bone, mauve, and eggshell blue aims to excavate the histories that I have inherited, asking "How is my body, in this time and space, historic?"
