This small boustrophedon takes notice of the intricate waste that proliferates at America's roadsides. The book is a grid of micro-meditations that attempt to balance our startling misuse of the planet with human beings' incredible ingenuity. The prints document tiny indicators of how our country thrives and falters, each small page a critical piece of an unknown something, and the book structure a map of discarded pieces of the great American puzzle. The found objects were inked and printed on Masa via letterpress and gelatin monoprinting. Each single sheet was treated with a sumi ink and salt wash, folded, and housed in a paper slipcase which is signed and numbered by the artist. --Vamp & Tramp, vendor description.
