The subject of "Inscapes" is my experience of living and working in the space that is my studio and my home. The objects, the architecture, sometimes a figure, the ever changing light, the ordinariness of things transfigured by that light and its shadows all are the subject of "Inscapes". The video "Eleven Books" shows a selection of the images of "Inscapes" but it also shows the simple accordion book as a variety of sculptural objects. It shows the books to be sturdy and handleable – everyday things like the experience of the space they portray. And sometimes humorous things.
