"Estirpe" from the |eks| series

I am interested in exploring one of the primary inhibitors to my sleep: cancer. Four years ago, my father was diagnosed with cancer. The fact that I am both far away from home, and that cancer is a synonymous with having an expiration date, has made my head spin day and night.

Using x-ray images, Chiriboga explores the ubiquity of cancer by making the “'invisible visible... [to] express the continuous presence of the past contained within us'” as David Maisel wrote.
