Nikki Thompson
Nikki Thompson enjoys obscure, innovative literature and the fine craftsmanship of outdated technologies and "women's work." She likes the craft even better if it has a cantankerous Union history. She uses these crafts to make artist's books that investigate structure, material, and image in terms of poetry, both hers and that of poets she likes. Her work frequently uses metaphors of science and architecture to explore isolation and relationships.
