Summary
"The book is about gravitational force, both in the physical, literal sense of the moon pulling at the earth's oceans to generate tides, and in the psychological phenomenon of being drawn to the moon and to the sea. My goal was to capture some of the visual and aural qualities that compel us toward these two in the luminosity and subtle whispering sounds of the materials. There is very little text aside from the section titles. The final pages before the colophon contain the poem Nace ("It is Born"), by Pablo Neruda, first in the original Spanish, letterpress-printed on translucent abaca, with the English translation visible and offset on the page behind it."--Artist's website
