    'Travelling Light', is about home and the memories we carry with us. Threads traverse house-shaped pages, enclosed within a miniature vanity case. These threads represent memories contained within 'time-frames' of experience. Words running from A-Z describe ideas of what 'home' is. Unique book.

    06. Lilies of the Valley, 2010, Reconfigured book, wire

    Lilies of the Valley was reconfigured from the book: Châteaux of The Loire Valley.
    The inspiration for this book came from a paragraph in the text, which read: 'The Loire Valley (le Val de Loire) is often called the Garden of France.' Each of the Châteaux images contained within the book, were made into an origami lily and inserted into their rightful place on a map, also taken from the original book.

    In collection: Centre for Fine Print research, Bristol, UK.

    They Who Took The Word was made for The Library of Lost Books, a reconfigured book project: http://thelibraryoflostbooks.blogspot.com/

    From The Library Of Lost Books, I was sent a small, 1970s staple-bound pamphlet of poems. They Who Take The Word combines reconfigured elements of the original text interwoven with my own responses to the material:
