My experimental book forms originate from my handwritten words on paper that are physically manipulated into more three-dimensional and tangible platforms for "reading." The pieces experiment with new methods of reading in a non-linear manner. In a digital age that challenges the relevance of the traditional book, these pieces consider other ways to envision the act and experience of reading and writing. Personal journal writing and found pages from books are embedded in winding and sometimes circular paths. These pathways reference rivers, veins, maps, the Internet, literacy, and the changing systems of thinking and communicating information.
