limited edition hardcover book, 7″ x 11″ (plus exhibition of original drawings, photos and video)
In a series of videos, filmed conversations are edited so that all is left is the non-verbal communication, gestures, and facial expressions between the talking. Complementary photographs explore the minutiae and subtlety in the vacant lots of downtown Phoenix. Using the videos and photographs as a launching point, issues of complexity, perspective and intangibles are written about and compiled in a multi-layered, limited-edition art book. The writing fluidly transitions into organic, anatomical and structured imagery for a series of drawings exploring the connections between these social and urban spaces.
