Horizon, 2011

In the playful spirit of Billy Collins’ poem “Horizon,” this artist’s book explores the intersection of accordion and tunnel books with a set of six attached frames that produce different effects when folded into and extended out of their box. Each framed section suspends an acetate page that floats two lines of Collins’ poem a third the way up from the bottom of the frame. The watercolor painting in the box’s interior reflects the poem’s final two lines : or standing on the ledge of a winter beach / watching light in the water, light in the air.

11.5 x 61 centimeters
