While the computer has become a dominant mode of accessing and transmitting knowledge and information, the printed book can be seen as a historical object and symbol of ideas stripped of its original use. My work reflects an interest in the books' changing role as digital delivery systems (internet, e-books, etc) take over. I use book remnants as material for my work. I often combine these remnants with other materials, such as organza silk and paper prints as I explore what happens from their interaction. I work with a variety of mediums including printmaking, photography and digital processes. Cutting is an important part of my process as it speaks to how we view the world through screens and "daily cuts" from direct experience.

My work is also informed by how one experiences a book in contrast to a computer. Books must be physically handled to be read; computers require that one looks at light on a screen to read. Books are felt while computer screens are seen. I am interested in the qualitative differences of the engagement and attempt to make constructions that evoke the differences of the felt and screened, the visceral and thoughtful, and the textural and reflective.
