Artist Statement
In an effort to engage with material I have read recently, from newspaper articles to fictional works, I created a series of sculptures that  embody my desire to reify the experience of reading. In order to augment the content and form of these various and oftentimes disparate texts, I conceptualized their readings, by way of an exploration into the act of their consumption. My process combines traditional mediums such as bookbinding, embroidery, and paper-making with non-traditional materials including: found objects, ephemera, and personal belongings. Extrapolating on the consumption of the written word, this exhibition aims to invigorate books along with the diversity of experiences beyond their covers.
