Description

About this piece:

The souvenirs of place that I tend to keep not only connect very specifically to a moment of time, but also to a particular geography. Memory Triggers One presents six such souvenirs, each a specimen from the natural world kept for many decades, that triggers a memory.

The book structure is a hybrid of various approaches in a manner most similar to children’s board books. The thick, rigid pages allow for the encapsulation of the various specimens in round, window cut-outs faced with protective mica. The text is laser printed on recto pages opposite the verso presentation of the specimen. The window cut outs allow a specimen to be viewed on a spread that includes only the physical location of the specimen’s origin; once the page holding the specimen is turned, the narrative text linking object to place to memory is revealed.

Materials:

book board, leather, tyvek, mica, laser toner, various papers, artifacts, thread, PVA, domestic and wild bird feathers, wild bird bones and talons
