Fly Away

Artist Book

Double-leaved, triangular accordion of three texts viewed two ways, as the page turns or as a series of hills and valleys when standing. The texts repeat over a yellow brick road, "There's no place like home", flight defined as running away, and the artist's 2001 essay on escape. Pochoir and inkjet printed text on Sakamoto paper.
7 x 6 x 1-1/2"(closed)
