The fine vintage velvets and hand loomed linens in my handmade textile book See Us are inherently interactive. The lush fabrics move and mold themselves in the hands of the reader.  
With every book I create, it is the poetry, the paintings, the colors, the fabric manipulations, the binding -- all of these combine into a single experience. Book arts engages many of the senses (sight, touch, smell, sound).  The reader interacts with the form and the content. Books unfold slowly; they exist in four dimensions. The reader can experience a progression of emotion/reaction that would be flattened if viewed all at once.
My ankles can't bear the load.  They made sandals from plastic water bottles and string.
