The impetus for Almost Endless, a dimensionally variable installation of book forms, comes from my love of what the Japanese call Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing). Almost Endless was created using of a variety of repetitive variables for the production of hundreds of hand-printed images individually bound into dozens of flexible spines. Much of the binding has been done in forests and other outdoor spaces throughout Colorado.
These collages are visual riffs on all that we hold within — explorations of the unexpected spaces in our minds. These days we talk about bandwidth and overwhelm, alongside mindfulness and purpose. I’ve attempted to capture moments in time, full of multi-layered and competing thoughts, hopes, fears, dreams, and memories.
