Artist Book, 3.5”x4” closed, 1 of 3 unique editions
Autobiography is a word and image accordion book started as a b&w film self-portrait series. When I saw a narrative of growth and hope, it became a book. I’m drawn to accordion books by their likeness to miniature gallery walls. Even tiny accordion books make the viewer feel as though they’re walking through them, as their eyes move along the accordion to experience them when fully open. In this book I also considered rhythm and musicality to aid in this movement between images.
