Alternate Heirlooms: Hallie Maxwell


Hallie Maxwell’s great-grandfather was killed in the bombing of Hiroshima. In “Alternate Heirlooms,” she uses the tradition of tying repeating awaji knots in mizuhiki cords to honor him, as well as her great-grandmother and grandmother, who survived the blast. The works, along with other pieces, were part of Maxwell’s MFA thesis at Boise State University.
