a current important investigation of this portfolio is animal rights. the chimera series explores fictional animal combinations that can withstand human capture, containment, control, abuse, and ultimate annihilation. what creature can you imagine to stand equal to the human race?
another investigation is the tangible book. here the works contemplate the role that the traditional book or written text has engendered throughout history. The pieces ask us to reflect on our own beliefs, practices, and values we hold about text and its tangible nature. In greater consideration, this question is posed: does a written work that can be read, held, touched, and smelled, generate a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts?
