"Let us cultivate our garden" - Voltaire

When making this work, I imagined myself a future caveman who discovered a highly abundant, and possibly valuable resource in old books. As the information inside held no meaning, the colors and textures of the covers and paper tapped into the primal desire to express, create, and communicate. I let my impulses guide me to a desert landscape reflecting self, timelessness, destruction, and ultimately renewal.
