My series of pop up books uses computer enhanced photographic imagery and stems from a body of work titled “Photo Binge.” My state of mind while photographing and popping things up seems similar to the impulsive, out of control state that arises from binge eating, smoking, taking drugs, speeding, drinking, shoplifting and shopping. Each book has pull-tabs, rotating disks, and foldouts- all essential elements of a standard children’s pop-up book. With these mechanisms, I can obsessively and playfully transform flat psychological states and perceptions made with a camera and computer into a more interactive, collaborative experience.
