Artist Statement

I completed this assignment by creating a book that tells the story of a dream I had, in which I saw a magnificent cluster of trees and a solitary cloud with vines growing out of it. As the story unfolds, my desire to want to share this magical sight with a certain person gets stronger and stronger - but it cannot be fulfilled.

The sixteen pages of the book feature text on one side and serve as puzzle pieces, having bits of imagery on the reverse side. As the text is read, the pieces of the puzzle can be put together in order to form the complete picture. The process is representative of attempting to remember and retell a wonderful but cruel dream.
