Summary

An artist's book, consisting of archival pigment prints on cotton rag paper, papercuts, and embossing. The book is concerned with the precarious nature of the sea voyage - the perpetual advance and retreat of the ocean, the fate of vessels and passengers upon it, and the desire to remember or to forget. Using accounts of maritime disasters obtained from shipping logs, the work explores the nature of communication and our capacity to convey meaning, whether over distance or across time. It reflects on the way information is passed backwards and forwards; the consequences of the failure to transmit or convey meaning, and the capacity of language to communicate such things as fear and loss.-Adapted from the artist's statement.
