This artist’s book references Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, using the story as a critical lens to explore ideas around choice, agency and self-actualisation. In this work, the references to Alice become more oblique, as I examine internal and external spaces both literally and metaphorically, with windows and doorways suggesting the opportunity for new spaces and other realities; intimating a world where the mysterious and visionary are an everyday experience
