Book #9 – Enantiosis

This book was editioned in June of 2012 in Portland, OR — The quality of dialogue between any two parties seems to be heavily dependent on a consideration of language, precision of expression and a level of mutual understanding.

In and around our cities there are conversations where irony openly defies sincerity. This discourse within our landscape is mediated by apathy, opulence and mimicry and we are left with environments that deflect authenticity and honesty. These spaces are hyperbolic and distorted like funhouse mirrors, failing to reflect clearly and accurately; wavering, warping and skewing our understanding of place.

These are images of the finished edition and artist proofs.

enantiosis

[ih-nan-tee-oh-sis]
