SO BE IT. SEE TO IT. Visual renderings of the works/words of Octavia E. Butler
Upon seeing a post from the Huntington Library of the private journals of Butler and her continued written affirmation, “So be it. See to it.”, I immediately began work on visually translating the works of the foremost speculative fiction writer through my medium of choice, collage.
Octavia's hand-written notes, her affirmations - these precious hand written notes - appealed to me as much as her finely crafted books. It was as if they were a personal directive to me, So be it. See to it. And the work began. The work is all collage for collage is the medium for storytelling.
It is my way of honoring this American story-teller.
