The idea for the altered book that I am working on stems from my curiosity of how and why we remember things as we do, as a great deal of my work is somewhat memory related. I have started with the 5 senses and how they work, and will continue on how the information they perceive travels to the brain and how it is stored, and retrieved. I wanted to explore this in a book because it is partially an informative piece so it seemed appropriate. So far I have used only pen, but will work with image and text transfers as well as watercolor.
