Excerpt from the foreword by Rob Walker:

“The chaos that followed Katrina made anyone who cared feel like a small thing arranged into involuntary scenarios devised by unseen forces. Here, the artist arranges things, and in doing so restores wonderful order to her story, and her city’s. The viewer can and really must fill in most of the blanks, reconcile the facts and rumors. The journey is emotional, a roller coaster, a flight, an exile, a series of tentative steps into undefined spaces. Visually it’s the opposite of a traditional attempt to document an authentic reality, and that is precisely why it is so effective. Hurricane Story converts the chaos of life into the form of order that we call art.”
