To the Sea

To the Sea is a personal project where I challenged my (and others) preconceived notions on what a book “is” and what kind of forms it can take. In this experiment I used all the same components of a traditional book: words on pages, cut, assembled, and sewn together to form an object. However, this book hangs from the wall as a kind of instillaion.  The book was constructed during the 2020 Covid quarantine when I was desperate for a carefree day at the beach.
