"The artist book and print investigate the three diggings of the
Erie Canal. In the same way that the canal is dug and re-dug,
a story is told and re-told. Each time, the canal’s expansion is
accomplished with improved technology—a narrative repeated
and rewritten from a new perspective."

"For my interpretation of *shift*, I looked at the same conversation from two different perspectives within the same mind. The dos-a-dos book format contrasts the two views.

"My take on shift: a shifting body during a restless night. The
arrangement and rearrangement of the panels echoes the kind
of repetitive half-dreaming that comes to me during periods of
sleeplessness. The imagery in the book and the print comes
directly from photographs of my body moving. The language,
when read in different orientations, speaks about ways that"

"This book is about the complexity and beauty in a simple
piece of paper as it shifts from a flat surface to a crumpled
ball. The paper begins as a level space with straight lines of
plaids but shifts to valleys and peaks revealing its topography.
3D modeling was used to distill the complexities of the
crumpled sheet to lines and form creating a unique landscape
visible only within the pages of the book."

"{redirecting shift} is an visual narrative that translates
characters (glyphs) and grid systems into a visual story.
What is left when we delete or remove the content? It
was inspired by strike-through text, glyphs and music."
