Index of the Invisible was a research project that resulted in three related but distinct installations investigating such events as unexplained or sudden deaths, and the disappearance of individuals. Consisting of found photography, writing, drawing, and
maps, amongst other ephemera, this work
was realized by culling information from a variety of publications, historical archives,
and online databases, and explored several notorious cases, including the serial killings of nurses on the South Side of Chicago, in 1968, by Richard Speck; and the John Wayne Gacy murders in the northern suburbs of Chicago, which occurred in the 1970s. These installations transformed anecdotes into larger metaphors for the unexplained and the unresolved, revealing the systems themselves as imperfect indexes.transformed anecdotes into larger metaphors for the unexplained and the unresolved, revealing themselves as imperfect systems.
