The book is a remarkable format for experimentation. In most of my previous book works, these experiments were based in the content and presentation. For Out of Mind, it was the physical copies themselves that became the object of manipulation.

A 160-page, eight-part work relating to the concepts of identity, Out of Mind was published in an edition of 100 copies. Those physical copies were then each manipulated by hand—given unique covers, pages altered or added to, content adjusted by one process or another—until each piece was independent of the other yet recognizably part of the whole.

Above: Each of the 100 copies has a unique front and back—these are nine of the covers
