Jan Dove (Port Angeles, Washington, USA) graduated with a BA in Art from California State University at Hayward, and then from School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in Printmaking. She keeps on making art because it helps her make sense of the complexities and contradictions of the culture she lives.
Artist Book Statement: How To Develop a Healthy Immune System (2015). These suggestions are from a generation of humans whose mothers demanded that they “Get outside and play!" These mothers also said, "A little dirt never hurt anybody” as well as “Scrub behind your ears; you could grow potatoes back there.”
More recent generations have grown up in attempted germ-free environments, with indoor activities and hand sanitizers. Also with more asthma, allergies, childhood diabetes, and obesity. Increasing research is showing that a "little bit of dirt” helps the body learn to fend off the really bad bugs.
