"An approach [to bookmaking] that imagines various apparent oppositions—deliberation and desire, the poetic and the political, the lighthearted and the deadly serious—as generative dialectics; vectors that, when coaxed into strategic intersection, can be made to produce the friction necessary to wear away revelatory holes in the fabric of the settled."
When we reflect on nature, or the history of humankind, or our own intellectual activity, the first picture presented to us is of an endless maze of relations and interactions, in which nothing remains the same. Everything moves, changes, comes into being and passes out of existence. Wht is nature? uses a special technique of overprinting images and texts onto existing sheets of book paper to create a singular reading experience that captures the perpetual unfolding of nature as both a thing and a property within our reality, which is always already a conceptualized reality.
The Wht is? series of artist books that premiered at the 2011 NY Art Book Fair. Each handmade book exists as a unique physical work and an unlimited e-book edition, available on Apple ibooks and Amazon kindle.
