Letterpress from polymer plates on Crane's paper, hand painted sumi ink.
Weatherproof was created while I was an artist-in-residency at the Center for Book Arts in 2007. This book functions like a small catalogue. The accordion book has 16 pages with a series of drawings printed in letterpress. The drawings depict imaginary pieces of equipment for a person to interact with nature.
Weatherproof follows a series of works I developed after 2001 that addressed the idea that our interaction with nature is mediated by objects that exploit our need for safety and comfort.
