“Searching for the Miraculous (Part 2 : The Journey) is a limited edition artists book based on the artist's 10 day journey across the Atlantic Ocean in July 2019. While she was on the boat she worked with the musician Jordan Lee form the band Mutual Benefit who was on the other side of the Atlantic in Cushendall, Northern Ireland. They communicated their experiences daily through email, creating a connected journey that served as the basis for the project.
This artists book provides insight into the process of creating the final work. The book shows the chronology of the days using excerpts of our daily communication along with images providing some visual insight to the work. There are 21 illustrations, a photograph and a video still in this 52 page book which consists of maps and images that relate to each day. The book is a 5"x 7" soft cover that is signed and numbered. There are 100 books in the edition, each signed and numbered.”
