Acapella Rhetoric, Clockwise Canon, Distinct Pianissimo, Generational Integrity, and Glossolalia Minor
From a series entitled Dream Palimpsests—artist books evoking dreams. Dreams, like palimpsests are glimpses—fragments of information containing stories and history—a plethora of information once clearly known and accessible, now disguised with the intrusion of the waking world. Memories, fears, passions, and desires—the hefty weight of the intangible combine with the random physicality of words, symbols, and ob·jets d'art which bore purposeful reason in the twilight. Lucid dreaming, daydreaming, recurring dreams, and nightmares may give a multi-faceted, multilayered glimpse into the psyche if we could only interpret the wild and uncensored jumble that bombards us in our sleep.
*Definition of Palimpsest
1. writing material (as a parchment or tablet) used one or more times after earlier writing has been erased
Looking Down (Flight 1152)
Nestled in my window seat on a flight from Chicago to Phoenix, I was entranced by the mysteries in space while pondering the questions of life. In the quietude of letting go and listening, the answers ironically appeared wherever I looked—as if the question had never existed. The plane ticket—the conversation of the three year old and his mother behind me—spoke to the secrets of the universe and playfulness of wonderment. Looking Down is from a series of artist’s books exploring this expansive yet still and quiet space.
