Talking today about the work of creating a book from our private work on the self, reckoning with the most unbearable past; as it overlaps and interacts with the art in our lives, which in turn connects to the history of our relationship with art and others: Ed Steck, who spent much of his childhood bonding with his father over horror films, rebuilding in his new book, a place beyond shame. Guided by the process of “Imaginal Exposure Therapy,” Steck experiments with recording, imagining, interacting with the interior places of shame and trauma, challenging memory, personal myth and metamorphoses needed to bear the unbearable. Horror film obsession; adult films; memory; reenactments; shame: the strange differences between reenactment, repetition and discovery, healing.
