Three small books about Hotels. Hotels are places of transience; we have memories of hotels; of fabulous holidays, traumatic events, lucky business deals, strange conferences, fluke meetings. Each book considers hotels from a different viewpoint. The books have a certain ridiculousness, but there is also thought about how we inhabit, use, and desecrate places.

A Warm Welcome Awaits: a mediation on the impersonality and desolation of hotel bedrooms.

Great Hotels of the World: iconic five star luxury hotels. All situated with no sensitivity to their surroundings, dominating their locales.

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.
