Information Ages book display
South Anchorage High School Library, 2004

Municipal 1% for Art Program

Information Ages is comprised of a handmade paper and mixed-media accordion book, and several sewn books. These detailed bookworks are an artistic interpretation of moments in time in the history of human communication. They tell some of this fascinating story to students who are growing up in the digital age. The artworks show the use of different materials as information storage systems, and highlight mark making and the development of books and paper in different cultures. I present written didactics throughout.

When the new South Anchorage High School was being built, I worked closely with architects to modify the design of the library circulation desk and incorporate the 16-foot long by 10-inch high, curved glass display niche.
