Published by the Blaffer Art Museum, University of Houston, on the occassion of the exhibition "Janet Biggs: Echo of the Unknown"

Janet Biggs: Echo of the Unknown is a multidimensional exhibition combining video, sound, and objects that explore the role of memory in the construction of identity. Drawing from her personal memories of the effects of Alzheimer's on family members, heroic stories of public figures coping with the disease, and research conducted with neurologists and geoscientists, Biggs raises fundamental questions about how we become-and how we lose our sense of-who we are.
