  The Incorrigibles book (in progress) is a tactile, visual telling of the hidden histories of young women sent to the NY States Training School in Hudson, NY. My hope is to reinterpret an almost medieval book form, where the book is an object and a chronicle of daily life at the same time; tracing a slow erosion of an individual’s free will within a coercive system that intends/pretends to be redemptive. Documents in the book from the Training School will include: archival photographs of the girls, letters the young women wrote to their families, detailed doctor’s reports, legal decisions that led to their incarceration, letters written by parents to the institution, newspaper reports, and more.
