In 1996 I created a scroll from pages of tracing paper sewn together, The Scroll of Sarah. On it I wrote the story of my family’s origins of my name and I performed reading this scroll in my undergraduate seminars. In my religious world this was a creative and self-expressive overflow.

In the film Scroll I explore the process of drawing my life.
