I'm drawn to working with discarded cloth-bound books that provide a kind of storytelling through the detail of their wear, texture, color and evidence of time passed. Working improvisationally, I experience a sense of freedom in letting the material guide me, never knowing quite what the outcome will be. The process is an exercise in meditation that requires me to stay in the present with the visual conversation created by the materials. The series for "In Time" invites the exploration of ideas universal to the human experience around love and memory: the dance between letting go and holding on.
