This book works off of a short prose piece by my collaborator Joanna Ruocco. The piece is composed of a series of short phrases (aka parataxis). I investigated the relationships between the phrases via objects. A second layer investigates the overarching human relationship behind the piece.

Sarah McDermott lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she makes books and prints as The Kidney Press. She got her MFA in Book Arts at the University of Alabama. She teaches printing and bookbinding workshops in the NYC area.
