Lucy Astrid, a young amateur photographer, journeys across southern borders into the land of volcanoes, cowboys, gypsies, and tourists. She sends postcards to her brother Skinny throughout her travels.
This publication is an experimental space. Rather than a linear narrative, it follows an improvised internal logic. The Chinese scholar's garden was chosen as a spatial model for presenting the works of Olafur Eliasson in book format and for exploring the key philosophical concerns in his artistic practice. The book contains extensive material from a trip undertaken in February 2011 to the Master of Nets Garden and the Lion Grove Garden, two scholar's gardens in Suzhou, China. The journey explored the traditional Chinese scholar's garden as a model for physical movement, for duration, rhythm, and sequencing, and also as inspiration for the present book.

Limited edition of about 1000 offset printed, unnumbered copies. "Digital media and information technology became the center of my intellectual and professional life in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Coming to the University of Virginia at that moment immersed me in the world of digital humanities. The vocabulary and ideas this universe provided stimulated imaginative as well as academic work. This book was conceived as a playful expression of the imaginative resonses provoked by conversations in which I found myself. It was meant to be playful, suggestive, funny, dark, critical, engaging, a little throw-off book done as an inside joke among the digerati".

Drawing its aesthetic and organizational inspiration from Victorian naturalist journals, Observations... is an exploration in how technical and scientific language arms the compulsive with tools for unorthodox ritual. The book is an exploration in miniaturization, anxiety and symbol, and the image and text move between the realms of micro- and macrocosm. The superstitious and the rational are interwoven throughout this autobiographical narrative, addressing the tension between those things that we believe and those that we know to be true."--Michelle Ray.

"Palimpsest was my first artists' book, and grew from photographic collage work I had been doing for several years. Frustrated with the limitations of single images, I decided to create more complex and multi-layered imagery through the pages of a book. Palimpsest is an extended collage of newspaper texts and photographs exploring world events seen through personal vision. The layered images become metaphors for the intellectual and emotional processes of learning, thinking and memory for me. The elements, drawn from found images and text, or experiences from my life, depict an intersection of the personal and the political. Newspaper text with all but a few words crossed out alludes to censorship as well as revealing a subtext of emotional language hidden beneath the surface of purportedly objective reporting. Unexpected juxtapositions form an open-ended narrative that considers the conditions of our culture and the ways in which we receive and interpret information." http://www.artistsbooksonline.org/works/plpt.xml

In the entire book, The Complete Book of Sewing by Constance Talbot (1943), there was only one photograph of a man sewing and he was listed as the expert. Over time, however, Paper Dolls became a sentimental journey through my childhood ..."-- artist's statement from Vamp and Tramp Booksellers website.
