HowMoreJoni Tevis’s concern is with the precise relationship of components in the world: how one element in an environment interacts with others.

How does the antique taxidermy in a natural science museum relate to the living birds outside the window? How do the opals found by campers, stored in mineral oil to conserve the water trapped inside, relate to the water table? “My practice is observation. How do relationships illuminate?” Using such models as Joseph Cornell’s box constructions, crazy quilts, and specimen displays, Tevis places fragments in relationship to each other in order to puzzle out lost histories, particularly those of women.

Throughout The Wet Collection, the narrator navigates the peril and excitement of an outward journey complicated by an inward longing for home.
