I wrote the words and because the two parts have a separate sense or tell a slightly different story, I chose to make a dos-a-dos structure. For those who are unfamiliar with this binding, it creates two books which share a common back cover. I like the structure as it keeps things together yet apart.
Finding my place
the movement of the constellations,
degrees of latitude or longitude,
can all locate bodies within time and space.
People, places and events
form the axes of my life
I find myself
and where I am
through the coordinates of those I love
and the things that I have learned.

I used a single sheet binding, cotton thread, rusted paper, rusted mild steel sheeting and ink jet printing.
