When we hear art making, we think painting is the norm, but we all have certain materials that best fit the content of our work. My good friend Evelyn Chao and I decided to create a book together about our daily fears because there is a significance of how the book acts as a way of containing our memories, history, and personal yet public content that is relatable.
Books are oftentimes used as a way to escape from everyday stress. And while the book helps us stay distracted, it also helps us confront our conflicts through a safe medium, the book. The act of engaging, reading, and flipping each page is soothing and comforting, and is vulnerable.
