This bookwork accompanies the Abide series of video installations (Are Closer Than, Outbound, Descent, Cut Flowers, Waiting) that explore the difficulty of being present and still. Like the videos, the images come from footage of my mother’s hospital room as she lay dying in combination with cellphone clips shot by my teenage daughter. The layout responds to the two-page spread and the experience of moving through the book in time.
