if you've been a long reader of this blog, it shouldn't surprise you that one of my most favorite obsessions is conjoined twins. i use the image of them a lot in my written and visual work, as it makes for an interesting metaphor, rich with hidden meanings. however, the image of them has been something that has fascinated me forever. medical abnormalities in general do this to me, i was even married at the mutter museum last year! to be marred by a difference, to be set against the current of "normal" yet to find ones own normalcy and self within the body of two people is something that interests me to no end.
for some more interesting reading on this subject, please check outauthor alice domuart dreger's book: one of us: conjoined twins and the future of normal.
