Human Frailty Diary

The "Human Frailty Diary" Project was an exploration into making my ecological research more autobiographical. I would usually say that my main focus is using art to support ecologically sustainable community building. But when I take honest inventory of my thoughts, they are usually directed towards fantasy, errands, friends, or loneliness.

In "Human Frailty Diary" I inserted my own internal dialogue into a research book as I read it: The Little Green Handbook, by Ron Nielsen. Every time I had a thought that caused me to pause in my reading, I wrote it down and added it as an annotation into the text, color coded and bookmarked. Every thing was left in, from spelling errors to embarrasing, clumsy and half formed thoughts. Honesty was the biggest exploration and challenge in this process. I remade the cover and title page using my long-time signature image.

In this project the book represents my context, or landscape, whereas the inserted annotations represent the distraction of being human. These distractions are the link between people of all contexts and focuses; regardless of lifestyle or politics we all love and we all experience loneliness. This project also addresses the active versus the passive reader; at which points did I engage with the author, at which points did I detach?
