Collectanea

Since childhood, I have had a penchant for the hunt. Weather scanning for the perfect skipping stone, a missing collection item, or intriguing natural abstractions to photograph. I love the act of searching. Collectanea combines my love of reading, libraries, and the search.

 

The project involves sifting through books in libraries for text that has been underlined by previous readers. By collecting these notations in their entirety without addition, subtraction, re-arrangement, or editing, I have excavated these fossilized poems.

 

The works are presented as simply as possible with book title, author, call number, and library where the book was found.
