As a digital artist/ photographer/ writer I've consistently gravitated toward the book form- as container, receptacle - and for the way the book form distributes content over time, rather than in one fell swoop. The time element -duration - which allows content to grow and cross pollinate is particularly useful to my way of working - a gradual expansion of a theme, variations and branches. I've also been drawn to the book form for the practicalities of portability. And for the intimate nature of a handheld object, the singularity of reading, individual rather than public viewing. As for content, I tread the flexible boundary of suggestion between familiar and abstraction.
