Book Sculptures

The Transcendental Series

Inspiration

The Transcendental Series is inspired by the writings and philosophy of Thoreau, Emerson and other proponents of Transcendentalism. The series incorporates shredded pages and folded flowers in the book sculptures to represent the fragile but important connection/relationship between nature and culture/humanity (which the book itself represents).

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” – Henry David Thoreau
