Speaking Secrets is a meditation on childhood sexual abuse. The text on a chalkboard wall contains voices of authority on sexual abuse, from survivors of abuse and abusers to doctors, sociologists and journalists, written rewritten and erased and thus only partially decipherable. A bronze wish bone hangs precariously above and just out of reach of a  bronze child's chair. The source of the child's pain invisible if a child were to be seated in the chair.  Henry Art Gallery, 1999
