Parallel Pathways reveals my discovery that there was often more than one way to get somewhere, if you were willing to be present to being lost and unattached to time. Parallel to this discovery, I noticed that somewhere in the past centuries, the Madonna has become unnoticed, a piece of art history for many and a point of prayer for few. This juxtaposition between time, journey, art history and prayer captivated my attention through the form of this storage book holding elements of the journey of Venice.
This book uses the storage book structure designed by Hedi Kyle and includes ephemeral from Venice, ranging from vaporetto tickets to prayer cards from Santa Maria della Salute. It includes laser cut-outs thanks to Free Fall laser, letterpress text and hand-painted gold accents.
