  1. I love the way you have set the type; it conveys weightlessness, like the camera revolving in that scene in 2001: a space odyssey. And I think Hawthorne would be delighted!

    • Such a gorgeous description of my piece! Thanks so very much. I was hoping for “ungrounded,” disorienting, circular text so I’m pleased the final work conveyed that sense. I’m on a “wanderlust” kick right now; I think for a while my pieces will explore all the nuances and uncertainty of being away, escaping the domestic, etc. Really appreciate your comment!
