Journey Book
Karen C. Kinoshita
United States, 2012

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell, don’t go back to sleep; you must ask for what you really want, don’t go back to sleep; people are going back and forth along the doorsill, crossing where the two worlds touch; the door is round and open, don’t go back to sleep.

I effortlessly related this Rumi poem to these particular photographs I’d taken, where my walks became journeys. The message is of a path awakened -don’t go back to sleep. The idea is intensified knowing these paths led to book arts, which are my heart’s desire and home ground.

My work aligns with my personal mapping of place and time, where one area in life may be illuminated over another at various times or it may be on a different journey. Where my experience and knowledge deepens, my opinions surface and could change.

Photography, transfer medium

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
