" Let your imagination blossom. "

She transformed this common dictionary, found at the Goodwill store, into a beautiful piece of herself - herself, in more ways than one. The form is actually a replica of her that we created by wrapping her with paper tape. A long and tiring process that took us over 2 hours. But what a gorgeous day it was to be outdoors and spend time together. The final piece is so cool. I am always amazed at Taylor's thought process and what she comes up with - the placement of certain words and photos have meaning to her that I may not understand but I know that she does not just randomly create - it all has meaning. / spring is the time of year when everything starts to evolve- buds turn into blossoms and cold weather moods turn into lively ones when you don't want to do anything but be outdoors. my art has also been something that evolves- in style as well as in form. i've been experimenting with a lot of things outside the realm of photography and really enjoying it. it was fun to turn something as simple and common as a dictionary page into a work of art and i'm really happy with its process and evolution.

So creative....if you gave me a dictionary and told me to do something creative with it, I would look at you like a deer in headlights! Nicely done!
