Tiamat by Miriam Sagan and Isabel Winson-Sagan

Here is our most recently completed project as creative collaborators Maternal Mitochondria. It is a series of photographs Isabel and I took of each other. Text is added to the images. The muse is Tiamat, ancient Near Eastern goddess of primordial creation, goddess of where fresh water meets salt.

We had a potential gallery space for these, but the pandemic put an end to that. Interestingly, the project then grew larger. It is a paper sculpture, based on a screen.

The photographs have been altered, scratched, and collaged.

The hanging knit pieces reference the net that a god threw to catch and entrap Tiamat.
