I could go with you. is a first-person account of the emotional aftermath following a specific traumatic event in one individual's life, examined through image and word. The narrator's internal struggle is delineated through retrospective sentiments and a fractured chronology. Text and image act as partners in I could go with you., challenging the nature of story telling, as well as the credibility of memory. This disjointed narrative mirrors how memory and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder function in the human psyche following an overwhelmingly shocking or painful experience.
