THE MESSAGE

Humans have great influence over the functioning of the wild world, but the wild world has perhaps greater influence over human functions—in terms of health and life, and also culture.

 

I’m interested in the ways that organisms in the wild interact with each other, the evolutionary paths that have allowed them to flourish, and the lessons for sustainable living they might have for humans.

 

My books explore these wild creatures and ecologies, and the ways in which humans perceive of and are influenced by them. 

THE MEDIUM

Pop-ups take full advantage of the expressive potential of a book's imagery. In paper, they provide the sculptor the opportunity to create 3D form and they provide the engineer the excitement of bringing those forms to life.

 

Pop-up books have the power to cultivate unsuspecting audiences. Widely considered a novelty, they attract the attention of adults and children alike, and provide a forum for exploring ideas relevant to all.
