The project began with research into a rural property. Visiting the site, I brought with me a collection of books relating to the site’s cultural history, historic context, ecology, and contemporary use. On a rainy day stuck inside, I casually perused through the twenty or so books. As I picked them up and placed them down the chance combinations of books on the table began to suggest different meanings. For the project, the books are placed on a coffee table in the main farm house and participants are invited to choose two books and put them together in a pair. The pairs of books chosen by participants are then photographed and framed. The photographs are mounted as a rotating exhibition along with traditional artworks and family photos in the living room of the house. There's an accompanying artist books, too.
