Volume Three

As a format, the book is a compelling medium whose potential was sidelined by the rise—and continued development—of screen-based communication. Its very nature is more closely parallel to our human experience than that offered by digital devices: bound by the limits of physical presence, constrained to a linear structure, composed of specific elements that, beyond a certain forced modification, cannot be changed without significant and lasting effect. Through 15 years of working with the medium, the Distorted Perspective volumes have been crafted as creative pivot points: a thesis in which the book itself is the work—not simply the content. In this regard, Volume 3 is no different than its predecessors.

The content, however, remains the true soul of the work. This volume deals with the world as seen from multiple vantage points: the personal, the social, the political. Narrative is constructed through an amalgam of original writing, illustration, and photography assembled with an approach to graphic design more inspired by post-modern art movements than the rules of the trade. The result is both a statement and a self-portrait, a mirror and a lens.
