Land Forms and Air Currents is my most ambitious work to date. The book travels across time and space, through beautiful layered landscapes accompanied by spare, image-filled poems. Stretching over 250 inches in length when fully opened, the accordion book incorporates scanned images of my original watercolors with floating pop-up additions. In this edition, I have melded my original background as a painter with my paper engineering skills.
