This bookwork from Julie Chen is about the subtle yet powerful influence that memory has on daily life. Personal history, while seemingly rooted in fact, may contain more meaning as narrative than it does as documentation of truth. In the form of a tablet with sliding pages, True to Life offers an innovative physical structure which corresponds to the shifting nature of memory, allowing the reader to create different combinations of text and image and thus alter the content of the piece, deliberately or by chance, with each reading. The tablet, with wooden handles and plexiglass window, measures 9 1/2 inches by 14 3/4 inches by 1 inch thick. The box contains a lifting floor with a built-in prop and can hold the tablet in an upright position for reading and display. The box dimensions are 10 inches by 15 inches by 2 1/2 inches.

True to Life was letterpress printed and produced in an edition of 100 copies.
