The Counting Sisters and Other Stories 2011

The three large handmade books, each with their own films, are The Counting Sisters, The Prediction and The Constitution. Visitors are invited to turn the pages and read all the books. The Counting Sisters is a fascinating collection of stories with evidence that is embedded inside the paper such as a fishing net, a cloth garment, rice seeds, a betel leaf and a newspaper. The six Counting Sisters are mourners who count the dead, the disappeared and many more things and The One Alone counts the living.
