Edgerton’s exhibit — which explores mental health in an insane society — maps the journeys of seven multimedia stained-glass kaleidoscopes. Their paths are interwoven with work from Edgerton’s handbound collage books, which explore her own navigation of mental health and related points of departure. It also includes interactive crisis prevention/intervention work created with the Art Asylum, turning the critical lens to the system we live in, while building creative cosmic connections between and beyond us all.
