"Pairing glimpses of the grandfather I never knew and glimpses of people known through social media, the work illuminates the dichotomy of knowing intimate details of someone while at the same time knowing little or nothing of substance about them. While the work has clear family history connections for me personally, my hope is that in paralleling the personal with the ubiquity of social media, more universal themes will surface reflection on identity, belonging, and the constant juxtaposition of the known and the unknown ... I chose the blizzard book structure housing loose and unnumbered pages to highlight the fragmentary nature of the material and to allow the reader to explore the pieces without a predefined order. The outer structure incorporates acrylic mono printing representative of the color palettes of the iconic social media platforms referenced in the work"--Vamp & Tramp, Booksellers, LLC website, April 26, 2016.

"Labor/Movement (seven workers) depicts movement visually in book form, while calling attention to the complexity of everyday human activity. The book tracks the motions of seven workers over a brief period of time with lines that change in length, width and color. As the segments of motion grow, page by page, lines intersect and interact, joining to form an intricate pattern on top of a static industrial floor. Shades of silver ink overlap to create a rich, opulent field that belies the seemingly humble activity. Each folio is sewn onto the mountain fold of a concertina. When the concertina is fully extended by the reader, a portion of each page can be seen simultaneously with each other page, exposing the frame by frame growth of the movement pattern. The reader/viewer is implicated in the performance of the book and asked to be aware of her movements as she interacts with the piece."--Artist's website, www.shelterbookworks.com.

Limited edition of fifty copies, signed and numbered by the artist, the Art Library has copy 13. "The set consists of four stories whose physical and narrative structure nest within one another like Russian nesting dolls. The books can be read separately, but when taken together, reveal a legacy of greed and colonialism across generations. Every time a new character's name is spoken, a new book begins that follows that character's life story. The first book's protagonist is a wealthy shut-in who becomes obsessed with an exotic deity; the three enclosed books reveal this retired businessman's colonialist past and the history of the deity's native land. With every book, the narrative as a whole moves backwards chronologically in time. The visual style echoes that of 19th-century children's mass-market hardcover adventure books, whose bright and captivating illustrations belied the troubling imperialist messages conveyed within"--Artist's statement at the Vamp & Tramp Booksellers' website, viewed on June 22, 2016.

Edition of 10, Art Library has copy 9. "I have created this shadow book with paper-cut-out images of Korean traditional doors. The process of cutting the pattern of the doors to create shadows recalls my memories of my grandmother in her old house. When I was inside, I could see the shadow of Grandmother cast on the paper doors from outside. Grandmother's presence as a shadow on the door has remained a strong image in my mind. Unlike many other doors, the traditional rice paper door does not totally block the inside and out from eath other. It only creates the concept of this side and the other while simultaneously connecting them to each other. When this accordion book is unfolded, the pages are shaped as closed, connecting the memories of my Grandmother, who is now in the other side, with myself in this world."--Author's statement.

Limited edition of 12 copies; all copies slightly different. "This book is entirely made of garbage, or stuff I had lying about. No new materials were purchased except the photocopying of pages. The covers are bottoms of mandarin boxes collected at Christmas. The socks and T-shirts were worn out ones raided from husband and son and self. The mitts and gloves were picked up on the streets as the snow melted. ... The paper was left over from Wake up the Frog and Library Book. The thread was from when I used to do embroidery. The 'tapes' on which the pages are bound are mostly from knapsacks. The fake suede is leftover from the blinds I made when we moved into this house; also the insulation from other Roman shades. The rag rugs were from my mother's. ... The text deals with the effect of garbage on our health.'"--Artist's statement, from bookseller's website.

"A small pamphlet offering a portrait, in writing, of the artist's mother from the perspective of an adult child: intimate, frank and epitomizing the complex relations between a parent and child." Printed Matter
Only a few family stories survived, along with fewer pictures. The voice is my mother's, although this book begins with my grandmother's dream and ends with mine. I have allowed myself to make such a personal book because the words and images are so typical of her immigrant generation. The structure of the book is a double pamphlet. I felt that different openings revealing random combinations of texts and images resembled the structure of memories more closely than a linear reading would."
