Screened In :: Jasmine Best

Screened In celebrates the nostalgia of the porched childhood, it reconciles the sun and the mosquitoes of the homecoming, and remembers the matriarch of the porch with all of her complexities. Despite its rightful place as a true southern icon, the Southern front porch has found itself disappearing for years. The porch as a public forum for storytelling has changed, and can be found online but the call and response of the teller and the audience still remains.
