Source Notes or Reflections on Categories Underlying Innumerable Things Complex and Wondrous, as Observable in Everyday Life, Far-Flung Explorations, and Fanciful Realms
Boone, North Carolina:: Curious Pursuits Press,, 2007.. One-of-a-Kind. 4 x 8 x 1" closed; opens to 9 x 8 x 4". Accordion structure with three tunnel sections. Materials: lokta, unryu, Southworth, and Konemann papers; metal fasteners; binder's board; Irish linen thread; decorative nylon ribbons; glass and metal beads. Processes: archival inkjet printing of the title, the alphabetic text, and original photographs for the tunnel sections. Paper-covered boards with title label tipped on front cover. Thread and hook closure. Signed and dated by the artist. Sharon Sharp: "I'm intrigued by how easy it is to categorize the things we encounter as either 'simple' or 'complex', when in fact simplicity and complexity mingle and dance, sway and embrace. If I open to that awareness, I'm continually pulled into realms of wonder, the mysterious wellsprings suggested in Source Notes. The title and the lengthy subtitle introduce the viewer-reader to this book in a way that book-titling conventions up to and through the 18th century were intended to do, by explaining the volume's scope. In this case, though, the reader-viewer, having opened the book, is invited to let imaginative play shape her or his own narrative, which might even incorporate the sinuous beaded ribbons."
