Caution – handmade star book (photography, monoprint); 9 x 5 x 0.75 in. (closed), 9 x 13 x 13 in. (open)
After each hurricane season in Florida my town is wrapped in many places with colorful caution band. I went out frequently with my camera trying to capture the mood, at the same time getting hooked by the seemingly endless possible close-up views of the tangled and knotted tapes. The images signify caution and danger. The caution band is a symbol – an icon for alertness and hazard, reminding us of the vulnerability and instability of our lives.
