a new terrain to read
Searching, digging, fact, fiction, loss, recovery...all intertwined concepts which manifest as books. But not the ubiquitous, sequential codex we've absorbed in the West, rather a sculptural form promoting reading anew. Jennifer Khoshbin has examined her world and exposes her findings in these beautifully built books. Uncharted terrain, she seeks authenticity but only through revisiting the way we read and approach the book as object. Brilliant work and meticulous craft, I'm always inspired by challenges of perspective and the seemingly banal.
