Metes and Bounds 2023

Metes and Bounds 2023


Artist book with digital and hand printing depicting a pictorial essay with text inserted in the back cover. Colophon hand tipped at the end of the image: ‘Myth remembers more than science’ 


“The title ‘Metes and Bounds’, is taken from an archaic legal term used to describe property perimeters based on natural landmarks. Because the tallest tree can be felled and creek beds waver, the “real” of Real Estate is now an imaginary net; flexible, vast, and effective, – and it covers the whole of  earth’s surface and beyond. Many of our closely held tenets delineating place, home, ancestry and identity are also changing form. This pictorial essay unfolds through a landscape populated with references to gently- used narratives of science and philosophy. The transformation and renovation of these principles is the crux and flux of living stories.”
