Within translucent pages, cut paper shapes create a neurological geography of veins and synapses, as the text speaks of emotional pathways. Turning the pages echoes the experience of focusing a microscope, layer by layer on a complex slide. On closer examination, once-familiar patterns of thought devolve into a dense, uncertain territory—an intimate relationship in flux.
