Public Abstract

SPLIT INFINITY (no blue, no green) is an interrelated triad of handmade artist books that explore personal and universal themes of identity and mythology within an analogous blue-green color palette. The books contain paper made from the artist’s clothing, and from the inner bark of Japanese kozo trees employing the Mesoamerican tradition of beaten bark papermaking.
