Shedding explores specimen collection and presentation with textual observations. Each day for 21 days I rescued something my body was shedding (eyelash off my cheek) or helped something detach from my body (plucked hair). Each day’s specimen was scanned at a magnification of 500%, those scans were printed via color inkjet and included in the book pages. The cover of each book holds one of the specimens sandwiched in between glass for a variable edition of 21 copies.

Theia Mania presents stories told by those who have been struck by a sensation of instant connection with another. In the classical world such pricks from a dart of Eros were called Theia Mania (madness from the Gods). The box holds a woven binding structure based on a Claire van Vliet design, a book of love potions, a love potion recipe with herbs, an accordion book in a round tin and an audio compact disk & wrapper.
