point to point navigation ( from the re-visions series)  | 2013
used book and pencil
re-visions consists of 15 completed and 5 in-progress books-- 9 are on view at Field Projects, NY, NY

re-visions begins with a simplicity of wordplay and continues through exhaustive process-based drawings and alterations within used books. I search for and select used books with titles I understand as directives to perform throughout, such as bookmarking every printed 'now' in bookmark now, or pointing to every printed 'it' with bright yellow post-it arrows in where to find it.

I do not read these books, but instead diligently scan each multiple times in order to highlight those 'nows' and 'its' mentioned above. These 'revisions' take shape as nomadic studios-- all have been worked on in the subway, some have seen other parts of the nation and one has been on a train to Italy. Each serves as a large-scale work that would otherwise take up entire walls if not comprised in a small, handable format. And they are time machines traversing the landmarks between author and inspiration, publisher, distribution, past owners, my alterations and your potential experience.
