Exits West chronicles a cross-country journey I made with my family from the East to West Coast. I began with observations about how the landscape changed from familiar to strange, and thoughts about all the things we miss as we drove past. I noticed all the place names on road signs and was fascinated by all those unknown cities and towns. The names were familiar, even in a different locale. An accordion book with foldouts, this work includes lists of the places we passed each day, and photographs and thoughts about our stopovers each night.

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.
