Conceived as the deconstructed tools needed to create a do-it-yourself artist book, each linen-bound portfolio box contains 10 sheets of museum board into which the lines of the poem have been reconfigured as laser-cut tabs. These tabs can be popped out and bolted together to create a gorgeous, highly tactile text-sculpture where a simple twist of the tabs completely changes the reading of the words.
