On Surfaces with Paul Benzon, 2019-20.
Supported by the IdeaLab at Skidmore College

On Surfaces is a collaborative research project with media scholar Paul Benzon, informed by histories of print, the book form, and the experience of reading.

‘To read is an act of vision in time. Moving between chapters, we encounter a sense of time and space, an intersection where our lived narratives are eclipsed by the speculative and realized lives of others. Over and above the temporality of narrative, time is present in text itself, in the book as an object. The book, then, is a time machine—not in what we read, but in how.’

Folio with screen printed clamshell box, 8.5 x 11 inch risograph prints, edition 50, 2021

Daytime: This is Magic is a co-created risograph folio combining text and image works by Jacob Berger, Paige Donovan, Joyce Moseley, Lillian Moseley, and Lindsay Buchman. Culminating from conversations surrounding joy, storytelling, and the experience of art-making during a pandemic, the folio reflects the artists’ responses to personal and collective memory, moments of excitement, and the camaraderie of being together while physically apart.
