Notes: “Lunar Calculations” is a book which opens up into a three dimensional celestial map. My etched imagery printed on the interiors and exteriors of the pop out pages are lunar phases and mathematical symbols which are archetypal symbols that I have utilized in my on-going work. The symbolic images become the 'text'. The book can be displayed by hanging it from the ceiling, on a wall, or sit on a stand.
I selected the Turkish map fold/pop out format for two reasons. One, it enables the lunar and mathematical imagery to be viewed as if it were a celestial map, and two, the pop-out structure element captures and recreates the excitement of infinite possibilities.
