52 Fifty-two (52) is a book created to define my identity through places, people, personal and historical events within a book structure. On the year of my fifty-second birthday I found myself with a group of friends exploring Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty in Utah. We each made a pact to make a book. I decided, that the book would be about where I was and where I had been. I also reflected on the significance of the number (52) and its implications. It is a narrative as the book is sequenced through the years. All family lineage is broken and the percents are touched upon as my daughter could be 52/48% Caucasian/Nuxalk (a North West Canadian Aboriginal group). This measuring, like counting, is abstract. How I deal with the subject is through an abstract narrative using collage, also a metaphor for so many countless things.
