Jackie Summel blurs the line between art and activism with her project based on her relationship with Herman Wallace.

It all started with a simple question, “What kind of house does a man who has lived in a 6 foot by 9 cell for over 40 years dream of?”

Herman’s House is on display in Quebec City at the Galerie d’Arts Visuels from March 25th until April 20th.

Two books that Jackie recommends as starting points for people who want to know more about the prison industrial complex in the United States: New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colourblindness by Michelle Alexander and Are Prisons Obsolete? by Angela Davis.

A shorter version of this conversation aired on CBC Radio.

The story of my body & feelings & me; from being tiny and full of myself to being a teen and loathing myself to modelling nude as a side-job.

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.
