As I Lay Dying Too 

Is an audio installation which consists of pipes and quotes taken from Addie Burden’s character in William Faulkner's novel As I Lay Dying.

I enlisted my neighbor to record these excerpts with me, so I could place the southern narrative of a woman from Faulkner’s book into a contemporary setting. The installation challenges viewer’s preconceptions of southern vernacular by using the words of a celebrated Nobel Prize author.
