Portfolio & Projects > Book Works

The book works present concepts of erasure and the ability of an image to communicate beyond language. We delete things. We edit our own narratives, both historically and in the day to day. We become editors of our own experience. We pair down the absolute overload of information to one very specific instance or image - and this becomes an icon for a much greater and complex sort of knowledge. These works are representative of my ongoing interest in the dimensionality of printed material and a containment of humanity through archeological sentiment.
