These two projects (Fading and Decaying), begun in 2008, are concerned with physical and cultural entropy. The process of decay and transformation is explored through carefully studied objects. The discarded, the decaying and the outmoded fascinate me. They tell us so much about where we have been and where we are going.
Books have always been my companions. Every room in my home is populated with them. Sitting in multi-colored rows side by side on shelves, piled high like unstable skyscrapers on the floor or resting alone on tables. They are not only reservoirs of memory and promise but are also an aesthetic presence. Works of ephemeral architecture populating interior space.
In this series the slow process of decay is recorded on the covers of books.
