"She was not what you would expect a heroin addict to look like, she died from a fentanyl overdose." I was struck by how indiscriminate opioid addiction is, how the stereotype of the substance user as a degenerate, disenfranchised human being is so wrong.

Installation 12'w x 4'd x 10'h, printed gauze layers and canvas backdrop.
